This is a picture of Karin Sander's "Siegfried" from the German book, Kunst in Scholade
(Chocolate Art). Today's mail brought a fine new copy for the store in addition to a few more treasures:
The hot chocolate cup is my favorite. It's Austrian, made by Higgins and Seiter, translucent china with delicate roses and gold trim, and a wonderfully eccentric spiraling handle.
I also like the rabbit mold very much, even though it's only half there. He has a rather dignified look and stands on his own.
The other books all come from paperbackswap.com, where I've been using all my credits on chocolate books for the library. The shop will have a good library as well as chocolate books, new and used, for sale.
I thought I might sell the switch plate, too, but now that I see it, I know exactly which switch to use it on in the shop. Maybe I can find some more to sell...
