Antique Cast Iron C.E. Mechanical Apple Peeler, Mfg. by Charles E. Hudson, Leominster, Mass., 19th Century, Working!

Sorry, this item has sold.

Antique, primitive, mechanical apple peeler in very good, working condition! Made of cast iron with a wooden knob, it is signed C.E. Hudson, Leominster, Mass., and has a patent date of January 24, 1882. It can be mounted on a table, counter or bench and can peel dozens of apples quickly, which would be quite handy if you are making a pie! The gears turn perfectly and the peeling blade is sharp. It can unskin an apple by simply turning the handle after mounting one on the spikes. After each apple is peeled, the blade retracts for the next apple to be placed on spikes. This old tool measures approximately 8" by 8" by 8". It displays very well among other antiques and would make great kitchen or restaurant decor. Also a great item to demonstrate at museums, schools, and pioneer day events!
