Antique Metal Chocolate Molds and Vintage Pewter Ice Cream Molds are a part of American and European history.  Each Antique Metal Molds shares a story.  Most of the Antique Chocolate Molds were manufactured in Europe before W.W. II as there were more European manufactures.  The majority of the Vintage Pewter Ice Cream Molds we carry were manufactured in New York. 


Antique Chocolate Molds are still used today by 'Specialty' Chocolate Shops such as Northern Chocolate in Milwaukee, WI and Mary's in Brussels, Belgium.   Some other uses for the antique metal molds include molding chalkware figures that are hand painted  as the pieces done by Vaillancourt Folk Art   to visit click on the link or click on the examples of hand painted chalkware  pictured below.
