This is an unusual item and rare to find. I believe it is for mixing meat but I would think you could mix about anything in it. It has a bolt mechanism to attach it to a table top and has a hand crank with a nice wooden handle with nice patina. The mixing bowl measures 11" in diameter. It is quite a heavy piece. It has the German name of Alexanderwerk on it which I would assume to be the manufacturer. I believe it is from about the turn of the century. What an unusual kitchen item this would be to display.
