KASHIGATA SUGAR CAKE MOLDS 

Hand carved from 100-year-old mountain cherry wood, the wood of these cookie molds is dried for 5 years to prevent cracking. Mixtures of sugar and soy flour are pressed into it and allowed to dry. The sweets, called kashi, were sold in confectionery stores and made for special occasions. The molds are crafted by only a few craftsman these days and are an interesting and beautiful piece of old Japan.  They are quite collectible and are one-of-a-kind works of art as well as for ceramics, resin or paper.
Taisho period circa 1920.
