This piece is a little different from our usual items, but when I saw the graphics I just couldn't resist! Take a close look at the family on this sifter. It just makes you smile, you can't help yourself. If you're looking for detail pieces for for a mid century kitchen, or if you're like me and you just love the graphics, this is something you won't see again any time soon. The condition is really very good considering the age. There's a little surface rust on the handle and inside metal, but all of the graphics are present and undamaged. The sifting mechanism works, and it's all complete. Makes a great conversation piece!
