A four sided moon cake mould

Flea marketing does unearth some unique treasures such as this four sided moon cake mould . The one sided ones are common but I've never seen one with four sides and there's something about wood moulds that are traditional and charming compared to plastic ones. I love the side that shows the mould of a little pig and they are traditionally sold in little baskets for the Mid Autumn festival. One day, when the moon and the stars align, I will attempt to make my own moon cakes.
