ANTIQUE DONUT or BISCUIT CUTTER - Late 1800's - 1930'S - a Unique Kitchen TIN WARE PRIMITIVE Cooking Collectible in USABLE CONDITION!

I will be listing a lot of Antique Tin-Ware …. I love these old pieces. By the way, when you are not using them they look great hanging in the Kitchen or Country Dining Area. Forgive me for using the same introduction to the different listings but I want to make sure that everyone enjoys these OLD pieces by giving a little introduction to Tinware. (The following is some information from a wonderful website: http://www.antiquetalk.com/index.php/antique-talk/38-antique-talk/miscellaneous/62-cookie-cutters)
"Most experts believe that tinned steel cutters originated in Europe several hundred years ago when wood carvers introduced metal inserts to their sophisticated sweet dough molds. Old European cutters tend to be outline forms with small cross bracing bars for support. America cutters often have a full tin plate in the back and occasionally, a handle. Many early cookie cutters found in the States have one or two circular holes cut into their tin back. The holes are normally sized to fit a lady's finger, so that she might be able to push stuck cookie dough out of the cutter, or using them to better hold her tool.
Most sought-after, however, are the large grey-patined solder- splashed, tinsmith-made cookie cutters from years ago. A large rabbit can fetch hundreds of dollars if its shape is rabbit-like. Even more if he's comical. A good bear cutter would be valuable because few bears were made compared with hens or trees. An "Uncle Sam" cookie cutter brought $3,000 at auction way back in 1989. At the same sale, a beautifully formed "Running Slave" cutter brought a world record price of $7,400! The buyer stated after the sale, he was prepared to pay as much as $15,000, to get such an excellent piece for his collection."

This Donut/Biscuit Cutter is quite an ingenious gadget. I have photographed it so you can see that it could be used to cut circular biscuits with or without a crimped edge or you could turn the handle to put the center hole in cutting position for donuts. It is in great usable condition…you could easily bend the circular tin to make it round again.

It is 6 inches long and the diameter of the circular cutting tin is 2 3/4 average. The circle is 1 7/8 inch wide.

Price is $22.00 and shipping is $6.00.

I gladly refund any shipping charges that exceed the postage and money spent on boxes and packing materials. Of course, I will combine orders to create larger refunds. Your purchases will be shipped within 3 working days.
