    Hi! Came across this whilst trying to find out what dariel cups were. According to Cassell’s Book of the Household (1889), a large Victorian household kitchen should have 12 of them, but quite what they were specifically used for seems to be lost in the mists of time.

      How wonderful! I guess you also have a lot of their cookery books too? The recipes still work, and they are a fascinating social record. What is your favourite item you have?

        Hi yes i have many of the cookbooks although i don`t bake myself. My interest lies in the way advertising was done in those days.With regards to my favourite item that is a hard one to answer but i guess it would be one of my flour boxes or one of my cardboard advertisements.Let me know should you need any pictures of other cook books done by the company.

        Oh thank you Gordon! Yes, little things which so often get thrown away, like flour boxes, they are absolute gems! I have a few recipe sheets from 1950’s and 60’s products like evaporated milk and Camp Coffee – fascinating! The illustrations too – especially the turn of the century advertisements in the back of old books for all sorts of peculiar items!
