This is an early all original red tin painted toy with gold line painting. It measures 5 1/2" long X 3" deep X 3 3/4" high. It rests on four vertical legs with a stretcher between them. The top is hinged and lifts up to reveal four sectioned areas on a rod which rotates when turned by the hand wheel on the side. The sectioned areas have openings to allow a material to be sifted or sorted. We are not certain what the name is of this type of equipment, but it is most interesting. There are no markings and it is in very good condition with a minimal amount of paint loss. There does appear to be a reinforcement of one of the stretchers.
