Description : Cookie cutter has a heavy wire handle and two oval pieces of tin attached in the middle with a rivet. The four ends of the metal are bent out, two one way and two the other direction. The ends are attached to a tin bracket which holds them together and also so far apart and the brackets have a hole in each side where the wire extending from the handle is shaped into a partial rectangle with ends that fit into the holes in the brackets. You held the handle and pushed the tin parts over the cookie dough and it would cut the dough into shapes and this was a faster way then an individual cookie cutter. It has some rust spots all over.
Commentaires : This rolling cookie cutter could also have been used for to cut out biscuit dough. Cookie cutters have been around in one form or another for thousands of years. The Egyptians shaped small cakes over three thousand years ago as did the ancient civilizations of Asia. In Europe carved wooden molds have been found that dated from the early Middle Ages. It was these molds, often German, that found their way to the American Colonies with the Moravians and other Germanic people that settled in Pennsylvania. However, the earliest cookie cutter, as we know it, was crafted in the mid 1400s. By the late 1700s tinsmiths had found a use for scraps of tin that were left over from other, larger projects. They carefully formed this scrap into simple shapes like stars and hearts with solid backs, and sold them to the farmers' wives as cookie cutters. Solder was very expensive in those early times and the tin cookie cutters had solid backs. The handles and various pieces were soldered together with small dots of solder to save money. It wasn't until the early 1800s that the price of solder became affordable and then the cookie cutters were put together with large welds rather than small dots. This is one way to tell if an antique cookie cutter that you are considering is from the 18th or 19th century. Shortly after the Civil War companies began manufacturing tin cookie cutters. The cutters still had solid backs but were more uniform and looked less "homemade" because of the sophisticated machinery. These manufactured cookie cutters were more detailed than those of the tinsmith and were often stamped with the manufacturer's name. Tin cookie cutters were popular until about 1920 when aluminum became popular. Aluminum was lighter, easier to care for, and stayed looking nice. For the next twenty five to thirty years aluminum and copper cutters were created in many types, shapes, and sizes. Reference: http://hubpages.com/hub/Collecting-Vintage-Cookie-Cutters
