Listing Detail Tabs

A scarce local pie funnel issued by Hutchinson Brothers, a high quality Auckland food retailer started, as the name says by four brothers in 1906. This old firm continues to flourish today as a food distributor.

Decent condition, signs of use but nothing drastic and not one I've seen very often. Who knows what delicious pies this funnel has been in over the decades?

In the 1920s, the firm advertised that it had stores in Khyber Pass, Queen Street (it was on the site of the recently demolished Downtown shopping centre until the early 1970s), Newmarket, Ponsonby Road, Great North Road, Takapuna, Milford and Otahuhu.

See our other auctions for another New Zealand pie funnel - the super rare Smith & Caughey version (they were probably made in the UK and overprinted for use in New Zealand 'the Britain of the South' as it was called).

Weekday pickup during business hours possible by arrangement (near Newmarket, parking right outside).

Superb gift idea for the collector who has nearly everything.
