Antique Cast Iron Fluter, Geneva Hand Fluter, Heavy Hand Pressing Tool, Farmhouse Primitive Decor, Mid 1800s
A very heavy cast iron Hand Fluter, weighing in at slightly over 5lbs, this jewel really works. Made by Geneva in Geneva Illinois, name and date patented embossed on the fluter, Patented August 21, 1866. This is an oldie.
In great shape, ready to display, or actually use if you like. I fluted a piece of paper, it works! Some signs of use and age as to be expected, hand fluters were very utilitarian, not a decor piece. This piece is the original model of the Geneva Hand Fluter. Other models came later in the 1800s.
There are 2 pieces, The bottom portion measures 6 inches by 4 inches by 1 1/4 inches. The top portion or the rocking piece measures 4 1/2 inches by 4 inches.
