This vintage ice cream dipper was manufactured by the Benedict Mfg.Co. of East Syracuse, New York. It is marked No.3 Indestructo on the squared off shaft. The Indestructo disher has a coil spring and was advertised as “A Steady Worker”. It is made of nickel plated brass with a wooden handle. This is a 20 size round bowl (twenty scoops to the quart) which is marked on the back of the shaft and also on the wiper which rotates when the long lever is depressed. The mechanism dates this prior to 1928.
It measures about 10 3/8" in length and the bowl measures about 2 3/16” in diameter. Overall it is in good original condition. The mechanism works well. The nickel is generally good but the plating is worn from the upper portion of the shaft and the part that is soldered to the bowl. There is some spotting of discoloration on the inside of the bowl. Overall it has light nicks and scratches from general use. This has not been polished or refinished, it's a clean ice cream scoop in original condition.
