Bring on the Chocolate

The first dimensional chocolate molds, arrived, in France in the mid-1840’s. Stamped out of copper and silver washed, these molds ranged in size and made from two or more pieces, the molds were usually held together with hand clamps or clips. In the late 1860’s, the silver wash was replaced by “tinning” (molten tin flowed over the mold) because tin was less expensive than silver, and the tinning would last longer than the silver wash.

Happy Easter from the Herefordshire Antiques eggciting!

A passion for antiques began as a young girl attending antiques auctions and Country house sales with my mother buying wonderful, timeless, elegant, faded and jaded pieces for our home. My interest blossomed over the years and a hobby turned into a full time working obsession where I gained invaluable experience managing a large reputable Antiques Centre in the Cotswolds selling to the general public and shipping trade on behalf of furniture and cabinet dealers.
