These old kitchen tools would have been found in most kitchen in the early 1900’s. The heavy gauge plated wire that has a zig-zag design was used for mashing potatoes. It has a natural wood handle with nice contour. The other piece, also made of heavy steel wire, was used for beating and mixing. It also has a natural wood handle. Neither piece has any identification. I would guess that these from the early 1900’s up to the 1930’s.
The masher measures about 9 ¼” in length by 4” wide by 2 7/8” and it is in nice condition with some pitting to the plating and otherwise light wear. The whisk measures about 9 ½” long by almost 3” wide. It is in fairly nice condition with some wear to the plating, light discoloration and minor spots of rust. The paint on the handle still retains some gloss but it has chip and rub wear from years of use. It probably had a zinc plating which appears worn.
