This old cast iron kitchen tool was probably used for squeezing lemons and such. The two cast handles are hinged together. On one side is a heavy ceramic vessel with a notch on one side, presumably for pouring out the extracted juice. The bowl can be removed by using the small set screws on either side. On the opposing handle is a wood plunger with what appears to be a cast aluminum flange. The use of the juicer is simple enough, put the fruit in the porcelain cup and squeeze the handles together allowing the juice to pour out. The cast iron frame is japanned in black.
It measures about 9 ½” long and 2 ¾” high when closed. The inside diameter of the cup is about 2 ½” by 1 ½” deep. It is in very good original condition with minor paint chip wear, primarily on the top over the bowl. The porcelain cup is stained but not chipped or cracked.
