100% Beeswax -tinted black and hand poured into an excellent reproduction of a heavily carved European cookie mold with the delicious smell of honey. Beeswax purchased from a local honey farm so it's nice and fresh.
A plaque of a collection of 12 very imaginative medieval cookies. Each is 1 1/4" x 2". Here's the list:
a bunch of grapes
a leaping deer
a flower in a pot
a sailing ship
a stork delivering a baby (the baby is in his beak)
a lady in her kitchen at the stove with a big pot
a butterfly and....
a guy on the pot- he's the German geldsheisser, the lucky guy who always seems to have money that comes from nowhere. Seeing this, you can guess where the gold coins come from.
There is a dusting of spices to emphasize details and give a warm look.
SIZE: 5" x 6" and about 1/2" thick
My castings are made from reproductions of the springerle and spice cookie molds carved as long ago as the year 1500. These cookies were sold at fairs and bakeries. You'll know what a competition for the best cookies there must have been when you see how beautiful and original these castings are!
Because Beeswax has a melting point of 140 degrees F, the casting will not melt under normal household temperatures. I store mine wrapped individually in tissue paper- BUT NOT IN THE ATTIC! I have beeswax ornaments that are 30 plus years old and still look as good as they did on the day I bought them.
There is a metal hanger at the top so it can be hung.
