Brass Skimmer with Copper Rivets

Brass Skimmer with Copper Rivets

SKU: RJ00060

These large, skimming tools were used in all kitchens (though the material would vary from iron through to brass / copper) and were for skimming vegetables etc from large cooking pots.

This particular one is a later example, with the bowl and handle made from brass with copper rivets attaching the two together and is stamped Peerage, England to the reverse.

In very good condition.

Dimensions: 40 cm in length and the bowl is 15 cm across and 11 cm top to bottom.
