You are offerding ona Griswold Rabbit Cake Mold. Manufactured by Griswold c1930. In 1865, two Erie families associated by marriage, joined in a modest venture to manufacture door hinges. The Selden and Griswold union paved the way for The Griswold Manufacturing Company of Erie, Pennsylvania, recognized world wide as producers of fine cast iron products, especially cookware. Between 1865 and 1957 when they closed production of the plant at the corner of 12th and Raspberry Street, their line of cookware had been sold and used around the world. Their designers and engineers produced many patents spanning almost 100 years of manufacture. Before the turn of the 20th century, they added cast aluminum products to their line. In the 1920's they enameled some cookware and by the 1930's they offered electric items to their product list. They produced commercial pieces for use in restaurants. The company was in trouble by the 1940's for a variety of reasons. Many products were being introduced by other cookware companies that seemed more attractive to modern cooks. Problems within the company between management and employees widened, the quality of the products seemed to decline, and in 1957 the doors of GMC closed leaving 60+ employees without jobs. This mold has been made with the two different pieces, one is nickel plated and one is plain cast iron, the plain cast iron one has a hair line at the neck, pictured. The Rabbit is stamped with 862 on the front and one halve is stamped 863, also has Griswold MFG CO Erie PA. There are no cracks, chips, breaks other than any stated. 11 1/2” tall x 11 1/2”. I don’t have a Griswold book in my reference books but the ones I have seen go for $100-$150 on .
Will combine, prefer it actually. It’s generally the same cost or a buck or two more depending on the weight. PLEASE WAIT UNTIL I SEND YOU A COMBINED SHIPPING INVOICE. WILL SEND YOU ONE WITH THE FULL SHIPPING PRICE FOR ALL THE ITEMS PURCHASED. IF YOU PAY BEFORE I SEND A COMBINED INVOICE, I MAY NOT NOTICE THAT YOU OVER PAID FOR SHIPPING. IF I DO NOTICE I WILL REFUND THE DIFFERENCE BUT PLEASE WAIT FOR THE COMBINED INVOICE TO SAVE A REFUND HASSLE FOR BOTH OF US. THANKS.
FYI: I always go to the USPS to mail the items
so I always have a receipt/ proof that the items were mailed
I suggest to the winner to print a copy of this
sale, it will increase the resale value of your purchase tremendously having
this information as a hard copy along with the bank. You are paying for this
information, make use of it! Plus it’s fun to look back in 20 years and say I
only paid $200 for that way back when. Most of the banks today selling for
$200-$400 were $15-$50 in the mid 1970’s, big money when the reference guides I
have were printed.
