Picked this up today. What in the world was this used for and how? I had never seen one so I grabbed it up!! My dogs liked it too, they wouldn't stop checking it out. lol

Says "RAPID WASHER"... and other stuff I can't really make out.

Thanks!

    It's a washing agitator. It was put in a washtub and then plunged up and down to agitate clothes.

    Tikiray, I can vouch for it still being used in daily stuff. I have one and I used it for washing long, weighted lace curtains in the bath tub.

    It isn't necessarily a collectors item because they still sell them. http://www.lehmans.com/store/Home_Goods___Laundry___Washing___Rapid_Laundry_Washer___66RW
