Salesman Sample Miniature Wringer Anchor Brand Lovell Manufacturing Erie
Dating from the turn of the 20th century, this salesman's sample of a washing wringer has some great advertising displayed. The unit measures about 7 1/4 inches wide (without handle) and about 7 inches tall (without thumbscrews). Lovell Manufacturing Company of Erie, Pennsylvania advertised their Anchor Brand with enclosed cog wheels as the 'Best on Earth'. The June 20 1899 patent is indicated on the piece on this working model. The handles does turn when thumbscrews are loosened, and the mounting clamps still work. The rollers are slightly flattened on one side, probably from being stored for years with the rollers set tightly together. About 13 1/4 inches wide with handle. Good condition. I do believe this would scrub up a bit more, but have left the finish as found.
