Antique English white ironstone "the gourmet pie cup" pie funnel
This listing is for an antique white ironstone “the gourmet pie cup” pie funnel. The front face is decorated with an under glaze black transfer, the belted roundel topped with a Victorian crown and the middle showing '369793 patent made in England'.
These little kitchen tools were placed in the middle of a pie to support the pastry crust while cooking. They would also let the steam out, helping to prevent the filling from boiling up and going through the crust.
This would make a great gift for someone who’s passionate about baking as they are still very handy and usable, or display beautifully in a classic Victorian kitchen or white ironstone collection.
This pie funnel is in good antique condition. It has a small flake on the top, along with some lovely staining and age related glaze crazing - Perfect patina.
