Vintage Fascination No. 131 ~ The Kitchen Edition

Welcome friends to a kitchen edition of Vintage Fascination.

These are all Georgia finds but this post finds me in Florida visiting my baby daughter.  So I may have a few Florida finds to share with you next week.

When I saw this aluminum measuring cup the lovely patina caught my eye.  So for only 25 cents I couldn’t pass it by.  It doesn’t have a manufacturing mark.

I have found and bought other vintage Bromwell sifter’s but a kitchen frame of mind took me over.  All the other Bromwell sifters sold in my booth so this one is for me.  It is a five cup flour sifter with a metal crank sporting a black wood handle as well as metal scraper inside.

Last year I found an Androck pastry cutter with an orange handle but the one I found this week has a red handle.   A pastry cutter is for cutting butter into flour when making pastry, pies, or biscuits the old-fashioned way.  I still use one when making biscuits.  So now I have two Androck pastry cutters but hey who can have too many.  One of my daughters will be happy to take one of them off my hands I’m sure.

My mother had a French Mouli grater like this one when I was growing up.  I remember mounds of cheese being grated in our kitchen.   It is a wonderful utensil for grating a variety of foods and this one is in good working order.  The chippy red wood handle on the cranking arm and the patina of the grater are what convinced me that I must have this Mouli grater.

This cute little basket with handles is another one for the basket wall (which may end up at my house).  I just adore it and it only cost a dollar.

Love this clover shaped cutting board.  It is joining my cutting/bread board collection but it may become a fun St. Patrick’s Day decoration.  It too was a dollar.
