What's for sale?

This is a complete and original copy of "Sally's Tested Recipes", a promotional booklet for Royal Baking Powder, a product of Standard Brands Ltd of Liverpool.

The artwork is basic, but the colours are good and it's a nice piece of history, particularly if you, or someone you know, is called Sally.

Several booklets featuring Sally were produced during the 1950s and 1960s.  This contains 9 pages of recipes in text and cartoons: Ginger Cake, Country Pie, Fairy Fancies, Easter Bunny Cake, Highland Cakes, Royal Queen Cake, Banana Delight, Dick Turpins, Walnut Fingers, Father’s Favourite and Christmas Pudding.

It's mounted in a black, engineered wood frame with perspex aperture.

When framing printed memorabilia, we use originals. We don't cut or deface and use a variety of archival methods to preserve and display. The frame is sealed but our method of pinning makes disassembling easier, if you wanted to view the piece (it would require remounting and resealing afterwards).

Like all wall-mounted artwork, avoid hanging in sustained, direct sunlight. Indirect sunlight is fine, but the UV rays in direct sunlight can cause fading over time.
