What Is It? December 2014

whatisit_12_2014

We had one correct answer for our  December’s What Is It. Norman Thompson of Louisville, Colorado correctly identified the object as an apple peeler or parer.

The object to the left is an apple parer. This particular one is a painted Pennsylvania Dutch decorated 2-foot-long apple parer. It is meant to be straddled. It includes the name of Samuel Skann, who is probably the maker.

Congratulations, Norman. You have won a year’s subscription to the Mountain States Collector.
