Antique 1920s Cadbury Bournville Drinking Chocolate Advertising Whisk
This is an excellent example of an antique advertising whisk, made by Cadbury Bournville, in the early part of the 20th Century.
Dating from the 1920s, these whisks were intended to be used to make Cadbury’s drinking chocolate. Reasonably large in size, it’s more likely they were used in cafes or restaurants at the time, or in large houses.
This is a very attractive piece of antique advertising ware to have on display in the kitchen. The hardwood handle reads “MAKE DRINKING CHOCOLATE WITH BOURNVILLE COCOA”, wrapped around it in black typography.
Normally these whisks can be quite worn and corroded from use. However, this example is in excellent condition. The whisk section is clean overall with just some minimal tarnishing. The wirework loop, which moves up and down the whisk to make it open or close, is still fully operative. The handle still has a great colour to it and is very clear still.
In summary, this is a lovely piece of antique kitchenalia which looks great on display but is also still very usable today.
Length, 24cm; Width, 7cm (with whisk open) and 5cm (with whisk closed). Handle is 1.5cm wide.
