Antique Early 20th Century White Ironstone Mould Advertising Brown & Polson Cornflour – Featuring Blancmange Recipe

A nice 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 fair condition for its age. Most notably, there is a hairline crack along one side of the mould. This stretches from the top to the bottom and is not stable. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend using this mould. However, as the price has been reduced to reflect this, it is a great piece for someone to have for display purposes, especially as the crack isn’t that noticeable.

There are also some minor chips nibbles to the top rim, as well as a small firing crack on the inside. However, the mould is otherwise in very clean condition and is a great item to have on display.
