I found this item in the garbage and it is in pretty bad shape. I started to work on this and I found a marking that said patented May 28,1918.
I have a picture of it on my blog. http://mytatteredcorner.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/0051.jpg
I have it apart at the moment, I started working on the top not knowing how old this item is.
I found the patent marking on the handle when I started to sand it down.
Since finding that marking I have not worked on it, wondering if this would be worth anything.
Besides the top being in bad shape, a small front wheel is missing as well and that looks like it was broke off.
I know this company is no longer in business with some of the research I have done. Also it is to have a tray that is not with this item either. I did find a picture of this item in great shape that I also put on my blog.
Would this be worth anything?
