A Shredded Wheat Dish

Commercial promotions and offers are something we take for granted and they have been around for years. Back in the 1920s it was possible to acquire a Shredded Wheat dish. We believe tokens were collected and with sufficient, the dish was free. The dishes make quite an elegant piece of blue and white china.

The photo makes clear that this dish, once owned by a family on Church Street, has quite a crack in it but it remains decorative.

We think the dish dates from the 1920s.

The Shredded Wheat dish was made by Geo Jones and Sons and the pattern was just called ‘Abbey’.

Information about the company is hard to come by but we believe they were a Stoke-on-Trent firm.

You can see the dish on the dresser in the kitchen at Market Lavington Museum.

    I have one of these shredded wheat dishes which has been in the family for at least 70/80 years and belonged to my grandmother. It is in perfect condition. There are quite a few for sale on eBay.
