Antique Tin Pennsylvania Large Flat-Back Cookie Cutter In The Form Of A Galloping Horse
This product is currently sold out.
Date: Uncertain but most likely early to mid 1800's.
Origin: Was acquired at an estate sale in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: The cookie cutter measures ~6 3/4" at its longest, is ~4 1/4" at its widest, and the design is ~5/16" in depth. The cutter weighs about 2.8 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: Nice and very old cookie cutter with a nice, unusual, and very desirable design, which would display well in your collection of primitives and/or cookie cutters.
Condition: The cutter is aged to a nice warm gray patina. There are some minor rust spots on the front and back commensurate with the cutter's age. The cutter's back is made of two pieces and they are held together by solder and the design itself. In addition, the flat back itself is a bit distorted and with edges slightly bent. The handle on top is bent out of shape and distorted but still securely in place. The piece also has remnants of an old label on the back, which can be seen in the photos. Finally, we believe that the cutter may have been re-soldered sometime in the past. However, none of these issues distract from the beauty and quality of this piece. Please see photos for additional condition information.
