Make your own ice cream sandwiches with this rare vintage 1925 dipper or scoop. Mayer Mfg. Corp from Chicago produced this dovetailed metal contraption that was made to mechanically release its 3-3/16" x 3-3/4" x 1/2" square of the delicious iced concoction onto a square cookie and be covered with another cookie of like size. The perfect dessert could be eaten without utensils like a sandwich. If you tilt it in the light, the barely legible words that are stamped on one side of the square mold say, "Mayer Mfg. Corp., Patent Pending, 1601 S. Wabash, Chicago". The adjustable shank allowed you to set the mechanism so you could get 16, 18, or 20 servings per quart of ice cream. Attached to a turned wooden handle, the 12" long utensil is still in good working condition (with a tiny crimp at one side of the end of the square) and would be a unique addition to your collection of ice cream memorabilia, making you a favorite relative in the family! Thank you for visiting.
