This is a great and a very hard to find Enterprise Ice Shaver from the 1800's. It was used to scrape across a block of ice to make shaved ice (i.e., snow cones!). It is marked Enterprise #33 Mfg Co Phila USA, Pat. July, 4, 93. It works great but w the tooth plate is screwed onto the inside (to scrape the ice) some of the teeth have been broken over the years due to use. That piece can be replaced if you wish to do so but it will still scrape ice but not as much at a time like it should. The ice shaver measures approx 8 inches long and approx 4 inches wide at the widest point. T are no cracks holes or pitting in the rod iron the shaver is very sturdy. It would make a wonderful piece to display or to use for that matter. I am always happy to combine shipping. Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Buyer to pay shipping. Happy Bidding!!!
A Note to my EBay Customers regarding DSR Ratings:
This is probably the most misunderstood of all the new eBay policies ... for Buyers and for Sellers! EBay tells Buyers that 4 stars, out of the maximum 5, are wonderful. EBay tells Sellers that 4 stars are terrible! EBay ''reminds'' Buyers that, since the stars are anonymous, YOU can be HONEST. You can! That is always your right, but you should have all the information and eBay isn't supplying that to you.
