WTH is it?

Recommended Posts

I found this when cleaning out my 88 yr old Mom's garage.  I have no idea what it is.  It appears to be professionally manufactured not home made.  Any guess?

As good a guess as I have.  I have two nursing DIL's. I'll ask them.  

 

Any other guesses?

It's a 6 pack beer chiller. 

Open first beer to drink,

insert other 5 beers into flow-thru super chiller,

dunk into bucket of ice water,

hands stay dry so current open beer doesn't slip out of grip...

 

what do I win ???

It's upside down dummy. 

Thats not a handle, it's a chin strap. 

Put it on and see if the voices stop !!!

Something for a fry daddy? That needs to be vertical? Corn dogs? Churros?

Can you provide some dimensions? It's hard to imagine the size without any reference. It appears to be plated. Maybe bright nickel? Are the connections soldered or welded?

Check it with a magnet to see if it's ferrous.

 

So far Joyce hasn't a clue. So much for the TN farm girl. :lol

Did she have a deep fryer? I'm thinking it's for pickles or something.

Baby bottles in the '40's thru '60's were usually pyrex glass and only about 2" in diameter and 6" long, so try fitting some objects of that diameter inside. You could refer to one of  Dawg's guesses to find something of a suitable size. :smilelol
