The Grimwade Perfection Pie Funnel
The Grimwade. A fine example of an Edwardian pie vent made by Grimwades, England.
These patented mushroom topped pie funnels were developed to build on the earlier popular pie vent models which had more slender chimneys. In iconic green transfer print which is synonymous with Grimwades pieces, these are both collectable and functional to boot.
This version features the following text in green:
“THE GRIMWADE PERFECTION PIE FUNNEL WITH VERGE ON TOP TO PREVENT PASTRY SLIPPING. GRIMWADES ENGLAND”
As with all antique and vintage pieces, this does show some signs of age. There are some very small nibbles on the base, and the bottom corners all have some discoloration which is common for pieces of this age. There is also a very small dent in the mushroom top. However, this appears to be a glazing fault rather than damage. Overall, however, this is in excellent condition and has no cracks or hairlines.
Height, 8cm; Width, 7cm.
