A highly collectable early piece of advertising kitchenalia dating from the early 20th Century.

Made by Doulton Burslem in England, these white ironstone shortbread moulds doubled up as an opportunity to also advertise the Brown & Polson "Paisley Flour". The black transfer print reads:

"BROWN & POLSON'S RAISING POWDER MAKES SHORTBREAD CRISP AND SHORT AND MORE EASY OF DIGESTION."

This piece displays well, but is equally usable for making your own homemade shortbread, measuring 19cm in diameter and 2cm in height. The Doulton Burslem mark, in black, is printed on the rear of the plate.

The mould is in overall excellent condition and is a lovely quality piece, with no cracks. It is also clean of the age cracks which often occur to the crimped pattern around the edge of the plate. There is light crazing on this piece and a small chip to the outer rim, although this isn't overly notable. This looks to be a firing fault which was glazed over, and a small amount of the glaze has now come away.
