Antique 1920s Treen Advertising Whisk for Cadbury Bournville Drinking Chocolate
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.
Normally these whisks can be quite worn and corroded from use. However, this example is in excellent condition. The whisk section is very clean and the wirework loop, which moves up and down the whisk to make it open or close, is still fully operative. The only corroded section of any significance is on the wirework collar which is joined to the handle. The black lettering advertising ‘Cadbury Bournville’ is still very clear, and there is very little wear or fading to the treen handle.
All in all, this is a lovely piece of antique kitchenalia which looks great on display but is also still very usable today.
Length, 24cm; Width, 8cm (with whisk open) and 4.5cm (with whisk closed). Handle is 1.5cm wide
