Made of copper of a sturdy weight, the cookie cutters were designed in unbelievably unique shapes and sizes. One of the most beautiful examples in my recollection was the large Noah's Ark set, which had giraffe, elephant, monkey and lion shapes (and so many more!) all packaged in a large, boat-shaped cardboard box. Also available were bug and teddy-bear sets, and several 'giant' cookie cutter varieties for the extra-large cookie lover. There were hearts and snowflake sets. There were leaves and acorns. And there were dogs, too!
The dog cookie cutters featured the cut-outs of 14 of the most popular breeds, divided into two sets. The original retail price for each set was below $100 but they are selling today on eBay for over $200, because of their rarity and collectibility. Below are examples of the two sets. So much fun and so unique!
