Kashigata Sugar Cake Molds, Hand Curved, Wooden




This is a vintage mold called "kashigata". This is a beautiful Japanese vintage wood sweets mold. 

Often made of sakura (cherry wood) and seasoned for about 3 years before carving, kashigata were used to make dried confectionery made of rice flour and sugar called rakugan. Earliest records show that this practice dates back to the mid-17th century. These confections were used as offerings and snacks for celebratory occasions and even unfortunate events. For example when a person died, it was expensive to give flowers or fresh food so, people made these sweets in the form of flowers, fish etc. These items were then placed on the "butsudan" (family shrine found in the house) for the dead person.


Kashigata were also used in the making of wagashi (nama-gashi or freshly made cake and hi-gashi or dried confectionery) for tea ceremonies.

Beginning | Branding Iron in Japan

 Beginning | Branding Iron in Japan
This is a vintage branding iron called a "yakiin". These were/are used on wood, leather...food...anything you want to brand. Please see the last picture to see an example of how it can be used.



I think they would look fabulous if used in pottery as a stamp. Also...I think they could be used with ink but as it is metal, the image wouldn't be as smooth and clear as a rubber stamp -please keep that in mind if that is how you want to use it.

This is "hatsu" (in Kanji character) which means "beginning, the first, start".

They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at least 30 years old.


This is made of iron. Please look at the pictures carefully 

It measures about 22cm long x 2. cm (the stamp) wide.
