Persinware Egg Beater and Attachment

A note from Geoff on Friday 28th April 2006
"Just a very-interesting-and-unusual item!!!
It is the only one I have seen - so I bought it
and it should match in with our other "attach-to-the-bench" items
of a Grinder, Grater, Mincer, and Slicer"

- The Ebay Auction

Persinware Egg Beater and Attachment
Up for auction is a old egg beater set
The beater fits in the stand
which you can then pivot back allowing access for a mixing bowl
It is like the modern mixmaster - but hand operated!!

An email I sent to the seller during the auction
Hi, and this is a very interesting item!!
Would you send me a note as to how high it is when it is hooked up to the bench top
I need to know this as I would like to display
it in a shelf-alcove-type areas on the end of our kitchen-wall-cabinet
Thanks, Geoff
......and the reply
Hi, and the beater stands 340mm from bench height to the top of the handle
Regards, Andy

So, did we maybe get a bit of a bargain???
