Antique Early 20th Century White Ironstone Advertising Pie Funnel or Vent – The Gourmet Pie Cup
This is a listing for an antique white ironstone Gourmet Pie Cup funnel, dating from the early 1900s.
This Edwardian pie vent is a classic example of white ironstone kitchenalia featuring black transfer print advertising in a belted logo. The beautifully designed bell shaped ironstone pie funnel was subject to a patent.
Still practical enough for use today to allow steam to escape from the middle of homemade pies, they are lovely pieces of kitchenalia for display in the kitchen too.
This pie funnel has no cracks or significant chips, save for some minor nibbles to the top of the vent. However, it has seen some wear from use (possibly being burnt) which has caused some wear to the glaze and crazing. Most notably, it has stained to a dark colour, which is more evident towards the bottom of the pie vent and on the inside. But it is structurally sound, and the discolouration adds to the charm and history of the piece.
