Just one of those things that I’ve always thought it would be cool to own. I ran across this and the price was right, lol. These were used in barbershops and candy stores, because of their small size. Still researching it, but made somewhere in the early 20’s. Not one of the brass ones, but I was still thrilled to find it. Of course, the standard answer to where it came from was that the owner didn’t know, but maybe came from a store in Fairbanks. I’ve lived here long enough to know that this may or may not be true….on the other hand, it would be insane to haul this around much. I nearly got a hernia from lifting and carrying it!!!
