According to Mr. Don Thornton's book "The Egg Beater Chronicles" this cast iron geared egg beater was patented as a beater and mixer with power on November 28, 1893 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania by Harry Jaquette.
This is quite the invention in intricate design. Embossed behind the gear " Patented No 3", this is the third size of five sizes made.
One handle is embossed " JACQUETTE" and the other PHILA. PA.
The age patina on this piece is exquisite.
It is in Amazing condition considering it is 117 years old !
The cast does not have any breaks, the gears move very freely & smoothly, the wire is intact with no breaks.
The approximate measurement is: 11" long, 6 1/2" high from table to top of wire beater & the handles spread apart to an impressive 16 1/2" wide when it is open all the way.
If you collect unusual antique kitchen utensils this is one you won't find everyday ,
it would be the focal point in any collection
