Description Technical Specs
St. Martin dividing his cloak in half and sharing it with a beggar. This block-buster mold of St. Martin is deep and rich in detail. Be sure to look at the enlarged photo. You can see him handing half of his cloak (the pleated fabric above the horse's head) to the beggar who is kneeling in front of the horse, crutch to the left with his hands outstretched. The face of St. Martin is very distinct as are his clothing right down to the spurs on his boots. The horse is strong and his hoofs, mane and tail are are well defined. Pomegranates and an acorn (all signs of fertility) round out the scene.

St. Martins Day is November 11. It marks 40 days before Christmas. Many European countries celebrate this day with feasting and bonfires the night before.

This day, the 11th day of the 11th month, is the start of the Fasching (Carnival) season, popular in Germany and Austria. The local kings and queens of Fasching are announced this day. Fasching continues until Ash Wednesday.

This antique cookie mold reproduction is made of a food-safe resin that is unbreakable and waterproof. It comes with metal eyelet hanger attached at the top for display on a wall. In addition to making cookies, you can make ornaments using this mold (we recommend non-toxic modeling materials such as Paperclay or Delight).
