A very collectable early kitchenalia advertising piece dating back to the early 20th century. Made by doulton burslem in angle, these tinstone shortbread moulds have doubled in an attempt to advertise brown and polson paisley flour.
The black transfer print reads as follows. Brown and polson breeding powder makes shortbread crisp and easier to digest. This piece looks good, but is also usable to make your own homemade shortbread, measuring 19cm in diameter and 2cm deep.
The doulton burslem mark, in black, is printed on the back of the plate. The mold is in excellent condition overall and is a beautiful quality piece, without chips or crazing. It is also age-specific cracks that often occur at the pattern set around the edge of the plate.
There are some minor age spots, and also a discoloration stain at the bottom of the plate, although the black transfer print is still very clear and readable here. The black transfer print is still very clear throughout the plate, but fades very slightly in places. Free shipping to the mainland to the UK included.
