Where you'll find Beauty in Imperfections!
It almost looks like a double boiler. But I'm sure there's another use for it.
It is small, about the same size as a small flour sifter.And the strainer part in the top reminds me of a fine filter. I have a question into an antique expert, hopefully Betty can tell me!
Looks like a small cream separator.Might have been for buttermilk or curdle cheese.It definately looks like it was used for skimming and separating the liquid of something.Warm Blessings!~Amy
Now that's a thought!!!!! Can't wait to find out for sure. I love it anyways! Just nice to know
I was going to suggest what Amy said. While growing up on a farm and having dairy cows, I remember my dad using something very similar to this. He would strain the cow's milk a few times to get the cream off the top.
Interesting, the antique Lady, Betty suggested it might be a vintage aluminum tea strainer. I don't know what is correct, But I love it!!!!
My money is on a cream separator............reminds me of time spent watching grandma strain milk on the back porch!
Well, I said straining the cream off... that's when the cow's milk comes from the fridge to your glass or dish.My dad used this type of filter/bucket to actually strain bugs and debris from the milk bucket to the milk jar. Didn't want to gross anyone out but that's really what he did. =]
