1920s Antique White Ironstone English Isobel’s Advertising Rolling Pin
An excellent example of a 1920s Isobel antique ironstone advertising rolling pin, with clear blue transfer print writing advertising various food items from the period around the pin.
These Isobel ceramic rolling pins date from the 1920s and feature a central ironstone pin with boxwood or oak handles at each end. Still in perfect working order, this rolling pin can still be used today and makes a fantastic ironstone display piece for any antique kitchenalia collector too.
The ceramic pin features the following advertising:
– MAKE BEER AT HOME FROM MASON’S EXTRACT OF HERBS
– ANTIDOTE FOR INDIGESTION “COOMBS’ AERATED PASTRY FLOUR” – SOLD IN 3d, 6d, 1/-, & 2/6 BAGS
– YOU MUST USE KILVERTS’ PURE LARD IF YOU WANT GOOD PASTRY
– ANTIDOTE FOR INDIGESTION – “COOMBS’ EUREKA FLOUR” – AWARDED 9 GOLD MEDALS
This piece of antique advertising ware is in excellent overall condition. Most notably, all of the blue transfer print is still very clear and vibrant in colour. There is some light crazing to the ironstone but this is very normal for pieces of this age and adds to their charm. There are also some small splits in the left handle. This doesn’t affect the use of the rolling pin, and they will not split further with ongoing care of the piece.
Length, 53cm; Diameter, 5cm.
