Antique Wooden Cigar Moulds


These antique moulds are a fabulous find! Used throughout the last century in “production,” (read: cheap) cigar making in Europe.  This useful device permitted a semi-skilled roller to make passably good cigars with less than a years’ practice. It had its roots in Europe some time in the mid 1800’s, though exactly when, where and by whom it was created is not recorded. They are often referred to as “German cigar moulds” because so many were made in Germanic countries, but some contemporary literature describes the origin as British. Wherever it came from, the wooden mould reached its glory in America where it quickly became accepted.I remember in the 1950’s in the back courtyards in Munich, where they’d be making cigars! Anyhow, these moulds make great conversation pieces, and paperclip trays. Fabulous gift item, for the man that has everything! Made 20 cigars, 22” x 3.5” x 2.5”, 3 lbs 5.7 oz
