Brer Rabbit Molasses

Brer Rabbit Molasses, 16 x 20, oil on cradled board

I recently read that one of the most collected items is vintage cooking pieces. I happen to be one of those collectors. Many are keepsakes handed down through family.

This Trompe L'Oeil painting shows a 1920's Brer Rabbit Molasses ad. The rabbit peeking from behind the ad is a die cut 'premium' from the same company. The handmade (made by me) chocolate girl and rabbit is from a vintage chocolate mold. And, yes, I made the Ginger Bread Man, too, from a recipe in a vintage cookbook. The other vintage items include wooden blocks, a ginger can and a cookie cutter
