This ice cream sandwich dipper was manufactured by the Automatic Cone Co. of Cambridge Massachusetts and is called an ICYPI (pronounced I-C-Pie). It was invented by James Denaro also of Cambridge. Two slightly different versions were made between 1924 and 1930. Many of these were apparently made of German silver but this one is brass colored. It may have been plated at some time although there is no evidence of that now and it doesn’t have the appearance of having been commercially stripped of any plating. It has a wood handle with a pin through the bottom portion which is the dark spot. These scoops were used to fill a cone shaped like a sandwich pocket made by the Pioneer Ice Cream Cone company. Only one side reads; ICYPI - Automatic Cone Co - Cambridge, Mass - Pat. Appl’d For.

It measures about 10” in length and the scoop portion measures about 2 ½” by 2 11/16”. It is in very nice condition with minor use wear and the spring mechanism works well. The brass has some darkening or “patina” and has not been lacquered. Overall it's a clean looking old ice cream scoop and not a reproduction.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
