Antique Apple Peeler, Reading Hardware Model 72


Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale an Antique Reading Hardware Model 72 Hand Crank Apple Peeler.
Wonderful old cast iron apple peeler and still peels the apples after all these years.
This was made by the Reading Hardware Co. it is a Model 72
This model is only marked with the number 72 which indicates it was a later made version.
The model 72 was still advertised and sold into the 1930's, so no accurate determination of age can be made, except to say between the late 1800s to the 1930s.
This peeler has its original green and gray paint, it works great although the apple discharge mechanism is missing, which automatically pushed the apple off the peeler after peeling.

Circa, Pre- 1930
Marked, Reading Hardware Co
Measures, 12” tall
Condition: as indicated above.
Please see all photos as they are part of the description.
