Elizabeth David talks eloquently about the early days of the ice cream industry and as she says

“no part of the early saga is more striking than the dazzlingly simple idea of the man who thought of applying the technique of metal-casting to the production of ice bowls,drinking goblets, and fruit dishes.

…..Moulds for them were still current up to the time of the 1914 war, and were illustrated in trade catalogues”



ice bowls – no very popular for dinner parties
