We owe George Borwick a great deal - for his was once the highest selling baking powder in the world!
His brother in law, Robert Hudson, introduced the first successful commercial soap powder (Hudson's Soap) in 1837 and actually gave George the formula for the baking powder as a gift.
This sign is part of that rich legacy. A full size dark blue and white enameled advertising sign that would have hung proudly outside the local grocers store. The message is simple as the product was universally known and trusted.
This authentic sign likely dates from the early 20th century and the marking to the face is commensurate with its wall mounting and use over time.
A strong, richly coloured piece of social history that would create a stunning feature in any period property, contemporary kitchen, cafe or restaurant.
