A rare Denby Dale Pie plate dated August 1, 1896 and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the repeal of the Corn Laws.

After the debacle of the ‘rotten’ pie from 1887 it was reported in the Barnsley Chronicle that ‘Pie Committee secretary Mr William Wood sang a panegyric on Denby Dale Pies and hurled back with lofty scorn the insults and jibes thrown at the Dale because of the fiasco of the jubilee pie of 1887.’

A dozen servers dished out 2,000 portions from behind strong wooden barricades of the huge pie measuring 10 feet long , 6.6 feet wide and 1 foot deep and, thankfully this time no one was poisoned!!

In excellent condition.

A lovely, hard to find , rare ‘pie plate’ with some great typography and a fabulous pie to the middle.
