50th Anniversary Heirloom Carvings by Gene Wilson
Gene began carving and marketing cookie molds in 1970.
He has chosen 2020 as his year to retire from carving molds.
In 2021, The Buchheit family will assume ownership of HOBI Cookie
Molds and will continue to offer Allen's carvings and the remaining
inventory of his Uncle Gene's carvings.
Although above molds appear to be speculaas molds, they have the details characteristic of antique old-world gingerbread
molds and can best display 100% of their magnificent carved detail with a good springerle recipe.

UNFORTUNATELY, Gene Wilson is retiring and will not be carving and signing finished molds after 12/31/2020. Many of his heirloom designs will not be available after the present inventory is sold out. His unsold inventory, and this web site's offerings, will continue for an undetermined time as the property and responsibility of Gene's niece Karen and nephew Allen H Buchheit. The Belleville Wood Art Show and Berllerville Christkindlmarkt have been cancelled this year due to COVID.
