This bright and cheery invalid feeder would have been a bright spot in an dreary sickroom. Invalid feeders were used to drip or pour liquids or thick soft foods into the mouths of adults or infants who were unable or too feeble to feed themselves. They were a staple in the infirmaries of years ago as a vehicle to feed the sick.

This small invalid feeder is made of translucent white porcelain and is trimmed with a thin gold line around the opening, the spout and the handle and cheery bright flowers ring the opening and trail onto the spout. The feeder is small, just 6 inches in length from the handle to the tip of the spout. It holds less than a cup of liquid.

There are no chips, cracks or crazing. The gold trim shows some light wear. The base is unmarked.
