Antique 1920s Whisk Advertising Cadbury Bournville Drinking Chocolate
This is a nice 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.
This whisk has worn a little from use over the years. Although the typography is still clear, the varnish has rubbed away in places. There is also some corrosion to the whisk itself. There are also two old insect holes on the handle but these have been treated.
Nonetheless it is still an attractive and quirky piece of antique kitchenalia. The wirework loop, which moves up and down the whisk to make it open or close, is still fully operative.
Length, 23.5cm; Width, 5.5cm (with whisk open) and 5cm (with whisk closed). Handle is 1.5cm wide.
