Antique Dover Tin Dipper / Wash Tub Suds Dipper

Unavailable
A wonderful antique tin dipper / suds dipper which shows early construction with a rolled edge and capped hollow handle with a wire bail on the handle for hanging. These dippers were probably used when women did their laundry in the old wash tubs to skim the suds off the top of the water in order to rinse the laundry. It is marked Dover on the side and measures 4 1/2' tall, 7 1/2" top diameter.
