This is one of the most unusual and best looking antique kitchen graters I have ever seen. It is made to mount to a table top and is made of cast iron. It is highly decorated with cabbage roses and a cherub with wings and a star. It has a wooden press that fits inside a tin box that is used to mash cabbage or anything else into the grater. It is signed in raised letters " HILDE - DUPLEX ". A rare and great looking piece of old kitchen ware.
