18th C Early Treen New England Clam Shell Cream Skimmer Aafa For Sale
Purchased from Stephen Douglas in NH about 8 years ago……..A
wonderful example of early farm ingenuity with a patina as smooth as butter!!
Very typical New England form. If you wanted cream, it was necessary to skim it from the top of the milk, and
this clam shell skimmer served that purpose. Made in the 18th or very early 19th century,
this amazing survivor was “sculpted” out of a piece of maple…so thin that heavy
pressure could snap it in half! By the mid 1850’s, they were making and using
the tin skimmers that we are familiar with today…..of the same clam shell form and
with holes punched for drainage. It measures 6” x 4 ¾” x 2” deep. A must for a true country kitchen.
