Happy Monday! One of our dealers brought me this item and asked What is it. So I'm putting it out there for you all to figure out because we just don't know. It's made of steel, measures 6-3/4" long, 1" wide and the flat piece in the middle slides. It's marked Keystone Furniture Company. So, What Is It?

Happy Monday! I found this interesting item in my own space today. It's silver (not sure if its sterling) measures 5.75" long and 2.5" high. The top piece is a perforated bowl that swivels, and it comes in a red presentation box. Problem is, I have no idea What It Is! I'm open to all guesses so please help me here....What Is It?

I didn't fool anyone this week, everyone had the correct answer. It is a Tabletop Double Plunger Cherry Pitter from the 1800's. We had some cherries in the shop and put it to the test. It worked great! So, if you have some cherries that need pitting, it's available and can be found in Space 9 here at the shop and is priced at $45. Thanks to everyone that played today!

We had some interesting and creative answers today, but only one was correct.....Dan Agostini got it right....its a Meat Juice Press. It was used to extract the juice from cooked meat for infants, as an iron tonic, or for people who suffered from tooth decay and couldn't chew meat. Here's a quote I found from a 19th century medical book about the use of a Meat Juice Press to extract juice from beef....."The liquid obtained contains all the nourishing qualities of the flesh, and none of the indigestible structure, and it is much more palatable than ordinary soup or beef tea, and is decidedly more nutritous". Thanks to everyone who played today!!
