German 'Laurosch' 8" tall chocolate mold depicting a 'Father Christmas' holding a lantern and wearing a short robe tied at the waist. The mold was manufactured by J.G. Laurosch of Schwabisch Gmund, Germany. This mold is marked "LAUROSCH....SCHW. GMUND" and next to it is the mold number "3024". There is also a "34" stamped on each side of the mold. There is surface oxidation spotting on the inside but the outside of the mold is in excellent condition showing only light wear and a few scattered clip scratches. The detail on this mold is wonderful. Judene Divone in her book "CHOCOLATE MOULDS....A HISTORY & ENCYCLOPEDIA" gives this beautiful mold one of her highest ratings for uniqueness, age, styling, detail, subject matter and rareness.
