This vintage book plate features five varieties of desserts and baked goods. Included on the page are: Open Jelly with whipped cream, Yorkshire Pie and Aspic Jelly, Trifle, Ices and Jellies around, Christmas pudding and Jelly of two colours. In the first version, I’ve restored the illustrations of the desserts but left the background aged and worn. Here is a second version with the dessert illustrations on a white background. The page is from Cassell’s Household Guide, Volume 3, circa 1869.
