Moulds of the German company Schneider.

I myself own the mould with lion, kangooroo and elephant.

 Molten metal melted on a stove and poured from a sauce pan, what could happen.
I remember doing this with my Grandad in the early 90s, we used a baked bean tin for pouring and old camping stove. I inherited those as well. The flats pictures are a white casting metal, but there is also a bag of older ones marked as Lead.

The animals are pretty cool.  I am sure someone here will know for sure.


I am wondering if these are some type of a kids kit that allows them to cast their own figures.  I have seen a variety of these and this has a similar look to it.  Molten metal melted on a stove and poured from a sauce pan, what could happen.
