Antique Brown & Polson Advertising Blanc Mange Mould
A lovely clean example of an antique turn of the century white ironstone jelly, jello or blancmange mould made in the early part of the twentieth Century.
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. 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. It is very clean, with no crazing, chips or hairline cracks. The black transfer has smudged a little during production but is still perfectly legible. There are some odd firing faults to the base and also general wear to the rims of the mould. There are also a few age spots in places.
