Item details

This great chocolate mold was probably used for making Easter ducks or ducklings. The mold makes five ducks at a time, and I believe these were made in the 1920s or 1930s. I'm not sure what type of metal alloy was used. It's heavy, and the dimensions are 14.5" long and 4" high.

I am happy to answer questions or send additional photos.


FAQs

After I photograph an item for sale, I pack it with bubble wrap/peanuts/pillows into the smallest available box I think can SAFELY accommodate the item. I then measure the box and enter dimensions and weight into the Etsy description. Etsy charges buyers shipping based on origin/destination zip codes, weight, and box dimensions. Occasionally, I underestimate shipping and typically pick up the extra cost without informing the buyer. Other times, shipping is overestimated, and I refund excess shipping to anyone who has overpaid. It's not a perfect system, but I am unable to properly pack and store all items for sale due to space constraints. Also, I need access to items so I can answer questions or take photos of items for buyers.

I enjoy answering any questions or sending additional photos of items I have for sale in my shop. Please do not hesitate to ask me anything about the pieces I'm selling, or questions about packing and shipping. I often receive requests for assistance (appraisals/evaluations/research) from people who are seeking to sell their own items or find out more about them. Regrettably, I cannot assist with items I'm not selling myself. I strongly suggest taking personal/family items to a local appraiser or auction house for an evaluation. Additionally, I encourage people to do their own research at a local library, or by conducting online searches of past auction records or valuations by other dealers. This can be fun and educational!

I do not typically ship overseas, so if you are outside the US, please contact me ONLY IF you are interested in an item over $100. Shipping outside the US is expensive, frequently more than the cost of the item being purchased, and I cannot guarantee delivery times, import duties, etc., once the items leave the US. More often than not, overseas buyers decline sales after I pack items and research shipping quotes from different vendors. This is understandable, but, for this reason, I no longer pack items and obtain international shipping quotes for items that cost less than $100 (at which point the shipping charges don't usually outweigh the cost of the item for sale).

I use recycled materials (except packing tape and labels), so I don't charge material fees. I use bubble wrap, packing peanuts, plastic air pillows, Styrofoam, and paper to pack items (in that order of importance). I employ sturdy cardboard boxes of all types, including moving boxes, which were designed for heavy books and records. All of the boxes I use are as hardy (or hardier) than USPS Priority Mail or Amazon boxes. I do not re-use USPS boxes, but do re-use Amazon Prime boxes. Of the hundreds of items I've shipped over the years, only one box has arrived torn and damaged (the items inside were unharmed). This is a rare, although unfortunate, occurrence. I can double box if a buyer is willing to pay the extra shipping costs.

I have fewer than 9 employees, so Prop 65 does not technically apply to my shop. However, I feel obliged to warn consumers that vintage or antique items may contain chemicals on California's Prop 65 list of carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Although there are hundreds of chemicals on the Prop 65 list, when it comes to antiques and collectibles, the mostly likely exposures to consumers result from use of decorated food or beverage containers that contain lead or other heavy metals. Children and pregnant and nursing mothers should use caution consuming food or beverages from antique ceramics or glassware. Factors affect leaching of heavy metals into food or beverages include temperature, pH, contact time, and concentration of chemical.
