Vintage Flour Sifter, Bromwell's 3 Cup Measure

This Bromwell's sifter holds 3 cups of flour. There are some rust spots over the outside and along the edges and handle. The metal is rubbed and tarnished but that just adds to its vintage appeal! Patented in 1930, it was a popular utensil in kitchens from the 1930s through the 1950s.

The sifting mechanism works fine but since there is a small amount of rust, it should be used only for display. The black paint on the knob has mostly rubbed off but the knob itself is in great condition.

Cup measurements are stamped onto the sifter as well as "Made in USA, Bromwell's Measuring Sifter, Guaranteed, Pat. No. 1753995." This patent was issued to Thomas G. Melish on 4/8/1930.

Measurements: 5-1/2 inches high and 4-1/2 inches in diameter. The handle adds about 1-1/2 inches to the width.

Can't you just picture this in your country kitchen, maybe with one of those neat mixing bowls with the blue stripes? Or put some wildflowers in it and sit it on your windowsill... how fun is that!

Imagine Grandma baking a cake or pie - she was probably using this sifter! Stand it in a bowl, pour in your flour to the measurement line and sift away! Makes the flour light and fluffy.
