BEL Cream Maker - vintage Jubilee Model (brown) in original box (c.1930s) (SOLD)
A c.1930s vintage BEL Cream Maker (Jubilee Model) with mottled brown and cream Bakelite (strictly speaking, probably urea formaldehyde) upper section and moulded glass base, in its original box. The cream maker measures approximately 20cm (7.85in) in height (with handle fully down) and 9.7cm (3.8in) in diameter at the base; the handle is marked "BEL / CREAM MAKER / MADE IN ENGLAND" to one side and "EMPIRE / JUBILEE MODEL / PAT. NO. 448775GB" to the other.
There is slight nibbling to the lower edge of the plastic upper section, with slight roughness to both the upper and lower edges, and there are some minor irregularities in the glass; the cream maker is otherwise in very good condition, although the mechanism is somewhat stiff. The box, which measures approximately 19 x 11 x 14.3cm (7.5 x 4.35 x 5.65in), is discoloured with creases, marks and general wear; it is open at the top, and there may originally have been an upper section. A small label stuck to the side of the box reads "Christmas wrapping enclosed"; this is no longer the case. Although there are no original instructions, a photocopy of those from a slightly later model will be included.
