Antique 1920s English White Ironstone Brown & Polson’s Cornflour Blancmange Advertising Jelly Mould
An excellent and clean 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 and is a very clean example. There is some light crazing all over, and some minor wear to the rims but otherwise this is very good and all of the under glazed black transfer print recipe is still very clear.
