This vintage ice cream dipper was manufactured by the Benedict Mfg.Co .of East Syracuse, New York. It is marked Indestructo No.4 on the inside of the thumb lever. It is also marked Patented July 3 1928. It is made of nickel plated brass with a wooden handle. This is a small, 40 size, round bowl (forty scoops to the quart). This little size was often used for melon balls and butter balls and even for making uniform cookies. The colored piece on the end of the handle denoted the size for quick identification in a soda fountain. The finish on the handle is almost a maroon color.
It measures about 9 1/4" in length. It is in good condition with minimal wear to the plating except inside the bowl which show more wear. The handle is in very nice condition and the mechanism works well.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
