Miniature mini loaf pans?

Hello! Last night I went to a wedding reception where about 30 people each brought a tray of sweets for the dessert buffet. One tray had the cutest mini loaves of sweet bread I have ever seen. Rather than the common mini loaf size of approx 3x5, these were about 1x2 inches. I've spent all morning trying to find a pan online but can only find the 3x5ish ones.  

Do any of you real-life bread bakers know where such a tiny mini loaf pan could be obtained?

Thanks so much!

some silicon pans that look like they were supposed to be used for mini candy bars.  I've seen them at Goodwill on many an occasions.  12 minis to a pan.

Have you seen this 3-channel lasagna pan that Mark used to bake his rye? http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/38551/100-rye

Pfeil and Holing's website seems to be down but their number is 718-545-4600. They have just about every baking pan you can imagine at just about wholesale prices. But there is a $7.50 handling fee on orders under $50, in addition to their shipping charges. (I avoid this by visiting their showroom.)

The website is back up.  Thanks for sharing this great site.

I believe this is what you are looking for : http://www.cakedeco.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=11139&p_catid=47&page=1

Thank you for the info. What a fun website!  However, it looks like they don't have what I was hoping to find. The brownie pan makes square, and I am hoping for a tiny rectangular loaf. Maybe I could adapt a brownie pan.  Wish I'd taken a picture of those mini sweet breads.  Maybe when the bride is back in town she may have an idea who brought what treat.

That site does have some cool looking stuff, but nothing that fits your original description. I think dabrownman was probably right about it being a silicone candy mold. Most websites that have candy molds, they are plastic. I'm not sure where you can get a metal or silicone one.

Hi! I think what you may be seeking is a Financier pan. Here's one I found by searching:

Cathy, you are too good. I've never heard of a Financier or the pan to make it/them in! I just looked it up in Google Images just now. They are so cool. I wish I had thought of them!

Thank you so much! I had never heard of Financiers either, and it looks like one of those pans will be exactly what I want.  And they look like they are simple to get a hold of, now that you've given me the right Google keyword. Yay!!!

I appreciate all the help from each of you.

I had not heard of them either until a couple years ago, wanting to use some almond meal, I found a recipe for these little two-bite treats. Lots of possibilities and they are so petite, they couldn't possibly have calories, could they?
