What Is It?

The magazine I like so much, Country Living, has a column called "What is It, What is it Worth?" and I thought of it as soon as I saw this tool at the antique store last week.  It was too good to pass up...
I set it on a bath towel so it was easier to see.... can you tell what it is?

Yes, that's Nathan behind it. You can see that the handles are worn with use.

It reads "Houpt Cutters".... and we think it's a biscuit cutter.  It still rolls easily, and we are going to make some yeast biscuits and see how it does!


  1. Biscuit cutter would be my guess. Can't wait to hear how it worked!


  2. I'm with Andrea - biscuit cutter is my guess too. Guess you'll know after you've tried it. :)

  3. Neat gadget. This could be called rollin' along. Mary G.
