Carpet Beater, Downton Abbey era. Beautiful Bamboo Carpet Beater, an essential tool for an underhousemaid in an English Manor. Or, you could just hang it up to look at it in all of its twiny beauty. This is in great shape, I believe it may be missing a leather or metal bit that at one time covered up the join of the bamboo and wire loop it hangs from. The blue ribbon is not old, just tied on by me for a bit of color. It's 31 inches long and about 10 1/2 inches wide. Lovely addition for a cottage or farmhouse style kitchen, or if you have maid with time on her hands.
