Fancy steel bubble & squeak chopper

Code: H20525


A very interesting, 19th century, bubble and squeak chopper. Bubble and squeak consisted of the left over potatoes and vegetables which were fried up together. This type of chopper was shaped liked this so that you could chop the ingredients over the edge of the frying pan. This example is particularly unusual in form with the raised pillar on the end of the blade, which you could also hold when chopping, to give extra force. It is made from wrought iron and has a turned, beechwood handle. It is English, possible from the West Country, and it dates from c.1840.

It is in good condition, with just slight pitting to the blade and a small burn to the end of the handle. 

Dimensions: Length 23.2cm. Height 12.6cm. Diameter of handle 2.6cm.
