Default What is it? (American - St. Louis)

A good friend of mine brought this to me. He didn't know what it was used for and neither do I. Thought someone here might know. He hopes that I would be able to tell him someday. Your help and input would be greatly appreciated.

Neal

Neil, very nice roller. We noticed the E-Lax sign in the background. We have a late 1800's Supository making machine from a doctors office. Beautifully cast with exellent japanning and gold pinstripping.

Neil,
When I first saw the pictures "leather" screamed out at me but I've jumped the gun before so this time I ran one of your photo's by Rob at:

http://55ools.blogspot.com/search?q=

and he came up with this patent search:

http://www.google.com/patents?id=b1J...067164&rview=1

Which sure looks similar to yours but with a few more dodads!

He asked if he can post your photo's on his blog and of course he'll give you credit for them..
If you want to contact him yourself his e/mail is:

Rob Hartmann, : rhvp65@gmail.com

Gene

I sent an e-mail to the blogger and gave him the OK. Thanks for your research. Anyone here where I live doesn't have a clue. I like a good "what is it" once in a while. I also have a wooden rake that I can't identify. It was posted "What is this rake for?". It was posted on the Farm + Industrial Antiques and Collectibles.
Thanks again, Neal
