Nothing fancy here.  You might have one of these gingerbread molds in your own house, looking no differently than this one - but this dates from approximately 1750 to 1850.  Why is it, I wonder, that we have always liked to press images of cute animals on our cookies?  (I get why we don't put ugly things on our cookies.)
