another non-iron but cool item
This is an old vintage enameled metal thermal chest good for hot and cold food made by K & M (Knapp and Monarch) of St Louis. It’s a cool old piece of vintage that probably still works better than stuff made today. But this one really needs to on display somewhere – it’s just so cool.
Seals are old (hardly surprising) but this appears to still be fully functional.
18” 1/2 long x 10” wide, 14” tall.
This is being sold as is. Body has some rust, some scratches to the enamel – it looks as vintage as it is.
Can you imagine getting your deli items prepared with this old time hand cranked deli slicer? This is a piece which I bet could tell some stories. Admittedly I’m presuming this was made to slice meats and cheese based on my research, but it could easily have been for potatoes and vegetables.
features a counter clamp to fasten it in place, a rotary head that has four razor blade like blades, a hand crank for turning the rotary head and a push plate to guide your item to the blades and not risk those delicate little fingers. There definitely was some art to using one of these.
I find this one to be just an amazing little bit of historical ingenuity. While it’s perfectly usable, it would make an amazing display piece too.
Sold in as found condition (everything works).
$65 shipped (FedEx with insurance) for $25 additional we can restore it for you if you’d like (Takes 7-14 days before we can ship).
Some of you may not know this, but I love old kitchen knives. Old carbon steel blades were probably some of the best ever made, they stayed sharp, were easy to hone, and cut better than almost anything made today. Most professional chefs, love and pamper their carbon steel blades – especially as modern versions of these can be $150-400 each.
These have been cleaned, restored and sharpened professionally. As they are used they will develop a nice patina (will look a bit like a dulling of the blade).
This one is an old vintage butchering knife by an unknown maker. Overall length is 17″ 1/4 inches, 11″ 1/4 of that being blade. scales (handles) are very nice and clean. Blade is razor sharp.
Carbon steel knives do require a tiny bit more upkeep than stainless as they will rust or discolor if not cleaned and dried after use, but that’s even easier maintenance than cast iron so I have no doubts you are up to it.
Here are three Wagner Ware toys/miniatures dating back 85-110 years ago. In excellent shape, all original, not reproductions. Pieces any collector would love to have.

Second: Marked: Wagner Ware Sidney -0- skillet 4″1/2 diameter, another beautiful piece.
Lastly – and the most desirable: the fully marked “”Wagner” Sidney , 0 Pat’d Feb 22, 1910″ Waffle iron with base.
No cracks, chips or notable flaws. Please see pictures and ask any question that you’d like.
SHIPPING VIA FEDEX with insurance is included.
Counterfeit Griswold #0.
These come up now and again. Fake Griswold #0′s made because the collector value on a real one is fairly high.
This one is a fairly well documented fake pattern with the odd spacing and alignment of the “Griswold” name, crude casting and rough iron.
Marked: ”Gris wold” “Erie PA, U.S.A.”
For a few buck it’s an interesting piece to have.
This is an old smelting pot, by an unknown maker.
Only marking is a number 6 (or is it a 9?)
6″ diameter, 3″1/2 depth
While I don’t know what kind of things this one was used for it was difficult to clean and season – and I don’t think I’d use it for food preparation unless you tested it for lead first.
Because of that it’s really just a nice display piece.
Looks great, and primitive, shows marks from a mold repair (that is the mold that was used to make it had repairs and you can see the lines of that on the finished product – considered normal just in case you were wondering).
Features a wire bail and a heat ring.
Cleaned and seasoned.
American (by Erie – pre Griswold) stove damper #7.
One of the harder to find dampers by size. Marked “AMERICAN, ERIE, PA.” “541″ on one side, “7. PAT’D MAR. 23, 1875, MAR. 13, 1877, APR. 20, 1880″ on the other.
A very old piece of pre Griswold Americana.
Sold as found.
