Edwardian Antique White Ironstone Isobel Advertising Rolling Pin
A very nice 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
As with all antique and vintage items, this piece does show some signs of age but these are minor and overall this is a quality item. The blue transfer print has faded in places, with some areas a deeper shade of blue than others. Nonetheless, all of the writing is still clear and legible. There are also some odd firing marks on the ironstone, but there is no crazing. One of the wooden handles has some very fine splits, one of which has been filled. The same handle has also had two minor repairs where the wood has been filled. The handle is still very smooth and they do not affect the use or feel of the handle in any way.
Length, 52cm; Diameter, 4.5cm.
