This primitive little mandolin vegetable cutter must be for potatoes or cucumbers since its working space is only 2 5/8” wide and 7 ¾” long. The overall dimensions are 12 ¼” to the tip of the handle, 3” wide and 5/8” deep. It has an adjustable blade that just needs a little sharpening and you’d be ready to go. This cutter was not just a decorative piece in the kitchen; the wear on one corner shows that the homemaker used this a lot, probably resting it in a bowl to catch the cuttings. The corner (pictured) is worn completely smooth. Part of the side piece is also missing, but it got knocked off years ago since it has oxidized along with the rest of the piece. The cutter has a nice patina to it. On the back is impressed the number 601 or 109, depending on which way you turn it. The cutter has a hole in the handle for hanging it on a nail when you’re not using it. It is in wonderful vintage condition. The wood isn’t splintered or cracked; in fact it’s been worn smooth.
This is a great primitive piece that would enhance your kitchen decor. Please contact us if you have any questions.
