Tin & Hamlinite Potato - Vegetable Peeler - Early 1900s

This unusual little potato/vegetable peeler is made of tin with a hamlinite scrubbing surface. According to an ad from the New York Tribune in the early 1900s ...

"This simple little device is merely an oval shaped piece of fluted tin, pointed at one end, which fits into the palm of the hand, the middle finger being inserted through the metal loop on the back. Into the tin case is fitted a piece of abradent, which is a composition material of the nature of carborundum. It is very durable and guaranteed for 5 years by the maker."

Measuring 4 1/2" long x 2 1/2" wide, it's embossed "Hamlinite Peeler Pat. Jul 20-20". It's in excellent condition and looks to have never been used.
