Antique Ward Vacuum Washer 86-298
"From the turn of the [19/20th] century comes this antique Ward Vacuum Washer. Looks like a metal plunger that acted as the agitator in a top of soapy clothes. Really nice hand held antique that is great for any collection. Water and soap suds shoots up the plunger and comes back out the top of this contraption. Would be a great birthday present for your mother in law!"
Has some surface rust that can be wire-brushed off, but then you would need to oil, paint, or re-plate it, else it will rust again. If you don't plan on using it for washing, oil spray should work fine. 27" long, 8" diameter.
