16 Vintage Cooking Clipart
A trip to the kitchen will never be the same again! We’ve pulled together a collection of vintage cooking clipart for crafting. They are all so cute, and I could see them used in all sorts of projects! These are perfect for creating homemade greeting cards, scrapbooks, and invitations. There are a variety of era’s here from Victorian to the 1950’s so hopefully you will find something that suits your style.
Baking Mom or Wife Clipart
Pictured above is an fetching silhouette of a woman wearing a checkered apron! She looks like she’s about to cook or bake with her Cookbook and fork in hand! This would be cute to use on Recipe cards, in a Family Recipe book, or to illustrate a Cooking post on your blog. This one came out of a Circa 1920s Cookbook.
This is an Adorable Retro Cooking Mom Image! The cute lady shown above is cooking on a vintage stove. She’s wearing a darling apron and a cute polka dot dress. This one was scanned from an old Circa 1941 Printer’s catalog. The catalog does not appear to have ever been copyrighted, as there is no copyright mark on it.
Here we have another cute and humorous image from the 1940’s Printers book! This one shows a young wife or mom who appears to be baking or cooking. She’s got her Recipe Book in hand along with her mixing bowl and a hand mixer. Her eyes are huge, indicating that she is surprised, overwhelmed, or both! How fun! This one might work well for Mother’s Day.
This is a fine Vintage Housewife Cooking Image! Shown here is a young woman holding a large spoon full of food or ingredients as she prepares a meal in her kitchen. She’s framed up in a sweet little oval frame with some curly cues on top of it! This one was scanned from a Circa 1916 Ladies Magazine.
Featured above is another darling Silhouette Image from a Vintage Cookbook! This one shows a lovely lady, with a very full skirt, retrieving something from her kitchen cupboard. Perhaps she’s having a fancy dinner party! It might make a cute invitation for a party of your own!
Retro Stove Clipart
These are the cutest Retro Stoves, aren’t they?!! They came out of a vintage Power company booklet. When I was a little girl my best friend’s Grandmother had a splendid stove just like this!
Vintage Cooking Clipart Recipes
Above is a cute Typography selection from a Vintage Printer’s Book! This is the heading for a ‘New Recipes’ section. You see a large crockery mixing bowl, wooden spoon, rolling pin, and measuring cup. Fun!
Confectionary and Sweets Graphics
Here is a sweet Free Vintage Image of a fancy little Cake! I took it from a Patisserie print. I think it is just darling and I love the cute scalloped edge Cake plate! This is from an old French document and was kindly submitted by a reader named Sandrine.
Retro Baking Coloring Image
Here’s a cute Vintage Cooking Clipart Image from an old Coloring Book! Shown above is a little girl with her Baking supplies! It looks like she’s rolling out some dough, perhaps for cookies! A fun one for both kids and grown ups to color in. It might work well for Embroidery projects too!
Baker Boy Images
Here we have an Antique Advertising Card with a cute Vintage Baker Boy Image! This little boy is wearing a Chef’s hat and holding a tray full of freshly baked goods. The card is an advertisement for Niagara Starch.
Above is a darling little Chef Boy! He’s all dressed up in uniform and ready to cook. Wearing his white Chef’s hat and a matching apron, he even has on a cute little red bow tie … so spiffy! He’s holding some type of Cooking equipment with a wooden handle. Perhaps it’s a wooden spoon and he’s mixing up some delicious cake batter. I love that it’s a round image with a pretty floral frame around it. So useful for many types of projects!
Chef’s Cooking Illustration
This captivating image comes from a very old Children’s Book about Trains. The two chefs that you see here are cooking on the Dining car of a train. Just look at this incredible scene that is illustrated so beautifully! I love the big old- fashioned stove they are cooking on, plus the cabinets and china are fantastic. They have several windows looking out to enjoy the changing scenery while they cook. The charming image is circular, making it perfect for crafting.
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Here we have a quirky black and white illustration of a Chef getting ready to carve a very large looking Steak or Roast! It looks like he has the right tools for the job.
I hope you enjoyed this fun curated collection of Vintage Cooking Clipart! You might also like our fun collection of Vintage Kitchenware Clipart HERE!

Thank you Jean. The new one on this post is the very last one. It’s the Chef that is about to carve the giant steak or roast.
I’ll tell you something – these ladies look so classy in the kitchen!! I don’t wear that or even look like that when I’m cooking and baking. LOL! But I sure would love to get that apron in the second graphic – wearing that polka dot dress – I’d take that dress too! Lol! That young lady with her eyes wide open is hilarious! I think she is ready to call 911. LOL!
Thanks so much for all of these great graphics!! I really appreciate the time you take in sharing these with us!
Happy Thanksgiving weekend!!! Enjoy your time!
Blessing to all!

Hi Karen. This is just in time for Thanksgiving when most modern women are just lounging around without a thing to do.;) This is just wonderful, especially that someone caught her using her magic wand on the meal. What a great image for a thank you card with a sentiment like “Thanks for your magic the other evening” with a bit of glitter where she’s touching the food.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to the absolute feast for the eyes that you always provide during the holiday season. Thank you.
Karen Watson says
Great ideas Marcie!! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving too!
