This pair of flatback, strap handled (one only) cookie cutters are folksy and fun! They date to the late 19th century and depict two women, one large and one small but could also be considered a mother and daughter because of the size difference. The mother is a very unusual cutter and hard to find because of the larger size and also because her feet show just below her dress. Most of the cutters I have seen do not have this feature.
The larger cutter does have light surface rust throughout but the smaller cutter seems to have escaped this circumstance. There is a small break limited to the left arm only where the solder has pulled away from the tin. The mother possesses one large and two small vent holes.
The daughter is missing the handle which provided an opportunity to create a wire stand. This piece may have been re-soldered at one point because the metal alloy extends past the figure. There are no breaks to report.
This wonderful pair of endearing cookie cutters would look terrific residing in a large dough bowl or can be placed together on your kitchen counter too. You can never have too many cookie cutters as they are so many shapes and sizes to collect. Enjoy!
Large cutter stands 6 ¼” tall, measures almost 3” across the top and graduates to almost 3 ¾” across the bottom. Smaller cutter stands almost 4” tall and measures 3” across.
