Large vintage steel chocolate mold to produce 48 miniature gnome characters by Vormenfabriek of Tilburg, Holland. Vormenfabriek predominantly made metal molds from their inception in 1921, right through to the early 1970s, and became particularly specialists in metal chocolate molds around 1952. A heavy piece in excellent condition, and could still be used today. Stamped with the company name, product code and 'Moule Echantil' .... possibly the product name(?) Would have been used to make chocolate figures to hang on a Christmas tree.
