Pretty to look at . . . glad it's gone! by 

A very nice, well-kept, antique wringer-washer from some of the quaint, lovely items in the large farmers market I visited. I can remember my grandmother using this thing (up until she died in 2000), and she had purchasesd two throughout her life. I was amazed to know that you could actually still purchase the style in the 80’s, when she purchased her last one!

To assess and hone her skills she joined Redbubble and several other art sites where she has made invaluable relations, and learned much. Her favorite for now is experimenting with digital art. She lives in the US.

    This is fantastic…. I have one of these is in a child’s toy version and it still works. I cannot remember when Father Christmas brought it but it is at least 60 years old – regards, Mattie
