This vintage ladle is stainless steel, with a red, white, and black bakelite handle. The back of the ladle is marked Stainless Steel A&J Made in USA. It is 11 1/2" long. The handle is mostly red, with a white or cream top piece, and a black narrow band connecting the two. The back of the handle is damaged, it looks like it was exposed to really high heat and the plastic kind of feathered. It almost looks like a giant fingerprint. The rest of the handle also shows wear, but not as severe. Price reflects condition.
