Kaybot Plaster Food

On a visit to an Antiques and Collectors Fair recently, I came across some vintage plaster plates of food.  Not knowing much about them, at £3 for a bag for 14 plates, of various styles, I had nothing to loose.  I had seen and read about food plates made of plaster, but could not identify them without a bit of searching on the internet.  There is not a lot of information about Kaybot Plaster Food, but I did find a very helpful article ‘Kaybot Novelties and Kay Miniatures‘ by Rebecca Green on the Dolls House Past and Present website.  It was here that I was able to identify some of my plates of food, as they are not stamped with a maker on the bottom.

The cakes look as if they came from the same mould, but have been painted in different styles and colour.

These plates of food may not have the realism of modern dolls house food, but there is something very appealing and nostalgic about them.
