with apologies to Ogden Nash...
I think it's a spoon rest. Probably promotional as you said but quite useful while cooking on the stovetop.
Spoon rest seems about right. Any idea of the date? I can't decide if the style is Nouveau or Deco.rdguy
Art Nouveau sausage warmer/server. The wide (and subtly mammaried) part would have held a grilled bratwurst; the leftover space was for two slices of bread-and-butter pickle and an elegantly formed dribble of mustard.
It might be the only one in existence, whatever it is. I'd say Art Nouveau, but that isn't a hard and fast rule for age, early part of the last century might be as close as we can get. "Subtly mammaried"- I like that.
"subtly mammaried"Oi!! This here is a family blog!rdguy
Family shmamily. I'm a guy, right? (Uh ... right?) We come with bosomvision, congenitally and also from birth.
Of course, if Mr. G ever decides to form a house band, "Subtly Mammaried" would be a great name.rdguy
