White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer. Original correspondence between Thomas Sands of Nashua, NH, and the US Patent Office regarding the several patents he received for ice cream freezer. Includes pages from a history of Nashua describing Mr. Sands, who was the founder of the White Mountain Freezer Company in 1872. Also includes a small hand-cranked freezer, 6" high, which could be either a model or, since it has ?White Mountain Junior" cast into it, could be the company's smallest model. The freezer is in rough shape, with the wood worn and iron rusty, but looks complete, and the correspondence helps tell the story of a forgotten Nashuan who was a pioneer of ice cream freezers.

Osborne. 21" long with an iron stretcher at one end, marked by Osborne, and a padded leather head at the other, 6" in diameter. The tag says carpet stretcher but the fact that it was made by Osborne leads us to believe that it was used to stretch upholstery straps, and that the user leaned into it similar to a breast drill. Nice and clean, and different. Good+ 60-120 **All absentee bids must be placed by end of day, Friday, January 24, 2020. Current high bids can be obtained by calling our office at (800) 248-8114.
