Default Re: Lamb Mold

Doug D. I understand this is an old thread, however like Sue (SJanous) before me, I also inherited a lamb mold, and just like Sue’s it has 866 on the right loop on the back of the mold. It also has three vent holes on the front half of the mold. In comparing Sue’s pictures, the holes on mine appear to be in the exact same locations as Sue’s. I’m not sure if this may help to track down the history, however my mold was used in my grandfather’s bakery in Barrington IL in the mid-late 40’s. (I’ve included Sue’s picture with Mike for easier comparison - her’s is on the table, mine is on the counter). Have you seen any more of these swings Sue’s original request a few years back?

Also, after my grandfather passed away, my grandmother kept making the cakes for the family and she used a small wooden dowel to plug the vent holes.
