Collector piece! Apple parer/peeler patented 1856 by Lockey & Howland who purchased the design from Horatio Keyes of Leominster, MA. This one is the very earliest design to bear their name – the small wheel model with the 4″ 1/4 diameter turning wheel. That dates it to before 1858. They made parers for roughly a decade before selling the business when it was moved and renamed – so there aren’t a ton of these out there.
Marked (line by line): “Patented” ”June 17 & Dec. 16 1865″ ”Turn Table Apple Parer” ”Manfd by Lockey & Howland”
This one is complete – and has been restored and is fully functional This one can be used in your kitchen or can just be an amazing decorative piece.
No cracks, chips, or defects noted. Iron is in exceptional shape with no pitting or obvious flaws. Even has the blade that was original to it.
Cleaned via electrolysis and seasoned with non-GMO canola oil. This is fully restored – except for the blade which was cleaned but not sharpened again – but it’s still plenty sharp.
