Vintage Glass Jar Food Chopper Metal Lid / Wood Ball open link
Perfect condition!…a bright sunny yellow with classic fruits and vegetable icons are encircling the spring action wood ball plunger You simply unscrew the metal lid and place the food in the jar (a wooden disk sits on the bottom), and the 4 way metal blade chops it all up as you plunge away! Everything is totally washable.
It is also a 2 cup measuring cup! So you don’t even have to measure the ingredients or chop until you have the desired amount.
The ball is a teal blue. No chips or cracks anywhere and the painted has very minimal scuffs…just around the rim very small blemishes. Basically none the entire piece is in near perfect condition. It is 11.5 “ diameter and 5.5 tall not counting the plunger. It weighs 15 oz.
For chopping veggies, fruits, eggs, celery, parsley, nuts, onions, carrots, and many other items…or simply to add to you vintage kitchen ware collection, it is cute and colorful to just look at.

Depression Glass: Machine-pressed, tinted glassware mass-produced during the 1920s and 1930s.
Depression Glass Back in the Day Depression glass was popular and affordable when it was new. The dime store, where the thrifty homemaker could find everything from toiletries to household goods, was a common source for this inexpensive purchase. At a time when a loaf of bread cost about a nickel, frugal shoppers could also buy a piece of Depression glass for around the same price. In fact, there’s a fantastic photograph included in The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Depression Glass by Gene Florence showing a Woolworth’s window display advertising an Old Colony pattern sherbet dish and plate "complete" for 10 cents.
Depression glass also made its way into American homes through the issuance of premiums. Sellers or manufacturers would offer a free gift with the purchase of a certain dollar amount of goods or a specific product, and penny-pinching ladies took full advantage of these offerings.
Glass was plucked from an oatmeal box one week, from a detergent box the next. Sometimes gas stations would throw in a punch bowl and cups with an oil change. Movie theaters got in on the action offering a piece of glass with a ticket to a Saturday matinee.

Thats about it for now...Enjoy your wintery days! Happy New Year everyone!
