Springerle cookies were made for hundreds of years and molds date back to the 14th century. Molds were carved mostly from wood or made of clay or metal. Biblical scenes were some of the earliest images. Eventually, other scenes were carved and the cookies represented images of holidays, events and scenes from everyday life. Exchanging  springerle cookies during the holidays was a common practice.
This early springerle board is of Pennsylvania origin with boats, bird, flower , hunting, animals, etc. designs. (BLDK)
