Antique 1920s White Ironstone Mould Advertising Brown & Polson’s Cornflour with Recipe
An excellent example of an antique early 20th Century mould advertising Brown & Polson’s cornflour blanc-mange.
Brown & Polson’s were the first company to manufacture corn flour in Britain in the mid 1800s. And they were quick to realise the benefits of advertising their products in items used regularly in kitchens across the country. They would often print recipes on to common pieces of kitchenalia, illustrating how their products could be used as an ingredient.
This mould is for their Corn Flour Blanc-Mange and dated from the 1920s. It features the recipe in black transfer print on one side of the mould. These pieces really stand out proudly on display in a modern kitchen, and they are still very durable for use as a jelly or jello mould today too.
The mould is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. While there are some patches of staining, notably on the base and on the inside, overall it is a clean example and the under glazed black transfer print recipe is still very clear.
