Flour & sugar dredgers & sifters

Having a vintage flour dredger on standby makes pastry rolling or baking so much easier. In the thirties and forties they were very utilitarian with streamlined aluminium the favourite, although a rare enamel one can be spotted occasionally. Tala turned them into bright, fun kitchenware when they painted them as part of their Tala Colourware range.

Tin flour sifters probably originated in America. with early ones having a little knob to release the flour. Squeeze handles came later and Tala adopted this design. One that they have recently revived !

But it was the potters that produced the most exciting flour dredgers with Kleen Kitchenware and Cornishware leading the way. In the swinging sixties Taunton Vale produced groovy designs for the era.

Crafty designers soon realised that it didn't take much to turn a flour dredger into a sugar one: Perhaps smaller holes ! Lord Nelson used the classic sixties design of their Gaytime to produced pottery for brands, including some fab sugar shakers for Tate & Lyle's caster sugar and icing sugar.
