Hi and welcome to another Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by Suzanne over at Coloradolady blog.
I love old cooking utensils – I don’t have many, but I can see that these could easily become addictive to collect. The first three in the pic belong to my mum. I can picture coming home from school in the 60s and my grandmother pounding the meat to make schnitzels with that meat tenderiser! I picked up the lovely old egg beaters at a local op shop yesterday for $8.50.
Lovely old scales, rusty metal and faded red plastic. The 1950s cloth was also an Oppie find – I paid a whole $2 for it!
Not really a utensil, but how could I resist showing you my mum’s 1950s lazy susan. It’s missing the bowl in the centre, but otherwise in pretty good nick – I just love the colours. I remember we had a set of plates and bowls to match (if you can call un-matched colours a match). I was so happy to find this in her cupboard.
And lastly , well I couldn’t resist buying this for $2 at the local Oppie – it’s such a giggle. Any guesses to what it could be? I first thought it was a garlic press, but no….
It comes apart into two pieces…..
But what really made me buy it was the explanation printed on one side.
“Distinctive” party ice crusher, complete with its own built-in ‘ice spoon’ (which I’ve only just noticed!) Hmmm…. small party, or do you buy one for each guest so they can crush their own? Maybe a job for the kids? Or maybe you start crushing a week in advance? Certainly different from the one built into my fridge door!
Have a great week!
