A small chocolate mold in the shape of an alligator skin handbag (or perhaps a brain if turned upside down?). Most likely Belgian. We acquired this in Ghent, Belgium.
If this is an alligator skin purse, we can assume this was a product of the roaring '20s, when such accessories were the rage.
Europe, early 20th century.
It measures 7 3/8 x 4 1/2 inches when opened, and 3 3/8 x 4 1/2 inches when closed. It weighs 4.25 oz.
