A Cool Christmas Gingerbread Thing

This seems like something that could be old fashioned, but it might be modern as well.  When I was a kid, and my grandmother used to make a gingerbread house, but she didn't use any kind of cookie cutter, she used a knife and some cookie based architectural skills.  This cookie cutter on the other hand looks like something she would own, but I'm not sure that they had gingerbread house cookie cutters in my grandmother's day.  So I'm asking any cookie historians out there, are gingerbread cutters a new thing, or have they been unearthed in great pioneer settlement archaeological digs?  Was my grandmother a classic baker, or was she just too cheap to buy cutters?
