My mom had a few of these, and I believe she bought them as decorative objects for her kitchen. Hers were not real copper, though! She would not have spent the money for solid copper. I remember the copper finish wearing off on the edges.

I grew up in the 1950s. My parents built a house for our family in the mid 1950s. We definitely had built in cabinets. I even remember (dimly) visiting a cabinet maker who made our cabinets. This looks like a lot like our set up without the fancy valance: https://images.search.yahoo.com/imag...ee&fr2=piv-web

I think the copper molds would look great with that cabinetry, but I do not long for it myself. If the copper molds make the OP happy, then by all means, she should enjoy. And possibly collect others!

I swear I saw one of those in the kitchen of Lily and Cane Ashby from tv soap opera Y&R, [9/12/17 episode].

I have one of a bear. Love bears.

The bear one sounds interesting. Grizzy bear or teddy bear?

I have one. It's embossed with an early Tudor lion. One of my friends gave it to me after our visit to Hampton Court Palace.

I use Barkeeper's Friend to clean it. Make a paste, brush it on.. let it set and rinse off.

About 1952, my grandpa built the house my mom and her siblings grew up in, and he put in built-in cabinets as well. I believe he made them himself, however, as I know they were custom-made to be convenient for my grandma's height (she was five-seven, which might not seem particularly tall, I guess, but maybe back in the 50's it was.)

In Teddy bear style

I like the idea of the lion as well.

Holy cow, that's a lot! I'm not sure I would want quite that many on my wall, but I do like having a few. As you say, it's a lot of fun.

I want that pineapple one in the second photo!

Your second photo shows a lot of the ones in my set. The jumping fish, the lobster, etc. I'm glad it also has some of the pink aluminum ones mixed in with the copper. The looks fine, IMO. Adds a little variety. So if I find some intriguing aluminum ones at a yard sale, I might just add them to my collection.
