Item details

A clown playing an accordion will put a smile on any child's face!
It was by Vormenfabrieck between 1952-1985.
It measures 9 7/8"H X 4 1/4"L X 2 1/2"D at the base.
This mold is in very good condition.
It has the Vormenfabrieck Tilburg-Holland stamp on it.
It is rated B3. See below for explanation.
As there are more than one of this mold, markings on the mold may slightly be different than shown in the photos.

The rating of chocolate molds: Page 60 in “Chocolate Moulds: A History and Encyclopedia” by Judene Divone copyright 1987
Molds listed “R” are Rare: due to age, the small number produced, the use of multiple pieces, or are designs rarely found in this country.
All other molds are rated by letter and number, from A-1 to D-4. The letter A is the highest rating, D the lowest; then further defined by the number.
The ratings take into consideration the type of mold (common or unique), its age, the manufacturer (styling and detail), the subject matter, and the number produced.

B.V. Vormenfabrieck, Tilburg, Holland 1921-present. Manufacturer. Founded in Delft, moved in 1927 to Tilberg. Presently the largest manufacturer of metal novelty and commercial plastic molds. U.S. agent ACMC Markings: early molds stamped VORMENFABRIECK TILBERG-HOLLAND, on two lines.

All of the molds I sell have been used in a candy making business between 1955-1985.
Signs of use are visible where the clips are put on and taken off around the sides.
Two to four clips will be included with the mold, depending on the size of the mold.
