A nineteenth century, French copper sugar spinner. Sugar spinners were used for making fine sugar work decorations. Sugar would be caramelised in the spinner and the the narrow, pointed spout would enable one to work the sugar into elaborate shapes such as nests and baskets. This example dates from c.1840. The turned, wooden handle is a little loose and there is small dent in the copper section of the handle. There is marking to the copper, from centuries of use.
