Description

This is a very unique vintage candy making mechanism!
The "zip lock clamping unit" was made and patented in Alden, NY by George Hake, a family friend. I honestly do not know how many of these he made. However, my Mother owned several.
The zip lock clamping unit measures 17 1/2" long by 14" wide by 5 1/2" tall. It is made of plastic and metal. There are several cracks and one broken piece within the unit. However, it still functions properly with its ability to hold the molds closed tightly together to make solid pieces of chocolate.
There are 6 inserts of 5 animals each. See photos # 3, 4, and 5.
All inserts are identical and have one of each of the following:
tall begging rabbit: 3 3/4"H X 1 1/2"W at base
sitting rabbit: 3"H X 1 3/4"W at base
stylized sitting rabbit: 3"H X 1 3/4"W at base
chick wearing hat: 3"H X 1 1/4"W at base
chick hatching out of egg: 3"H X 1 1/4"W at base
All of the plastic molds are in very good condition with no cracks in them.
Each animal will hold 1 1/2 ounce of chocolate to produce a solid piece of chocolate.
Due to its size and weight, it will be shipped USPS Parcel Ground Select. Please message me with your zip code as the price varies greatly from one area to another. Example: $9 to MI, $35 to CA.

All of the molds I sell have been used in a candy making business between 1955-1985.

I will ship within 1-3 business days after purchase. When purchases are made by 1:00PM (EST), most times they will ship the same day. Insurance is included in the quoted shipping price on packages that weigh more than one pound. I will use USPS most of the time. The quoted price is for Priority Mail (2-3 days) USPS if it is over one pound. If it is less than one pound, I can ship First Class without insurance to save you money if the item is not fragile or valuable. The heaviest packages ship USPS Parcel Ground Select (5-9 days). I will mention that in the ad. Insurance can always be added at your request. The items are shipped from western New York. I use Etsy Calculated Shipping where Etsy will determine the price of shipping on a transaction. When multiple items are purchased in one transaction, I will charge YOU the actual cost if Etsy over calculates. If shipping costs differences are in excess of $1.00, I will gladly refund the difference. If you live within a 10 mile radius of Cheektowaga, NY, I will gladly deliver the item to you without shipping charges.
