Vintage Japanese Sweets Mold Taiyaki by vintagefromjapan

This is a vintage mold called "kashigata". I don't know what kind of bird this is-sorry! In the past, when a person died, it was expensive to give flowers or fresh food so, people made sweets (these are made from soy flour, rice flour and sugar) 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. The sweets are for decoration only.

*You can use this mold as food mold to cook. Please clean thoroughly before using.

It measures 21.2cm long x 10 cm wide x 1.2 cm tall. Inside it measures 17cm long x 8.5 cm wide.
