This has been in my family for about 100 years I think. My Great Great and GGG Grandfather's (Corning and Haskins, father in-law and son in-law) owned a hardware and bank from 1880-1930's in Cincinnatus, NY and this was the display of the evaporator they produced in the hardware store. Very nice detail on this. Everything works. I have a picture of the two men holding their tin sheers around the turn of the last century.
I would not ever sell it but my question is the monetary value of this? I have never seen another like it. I wonder how many full sized ones they actually made and sold? Any information would help.
