Antique German Portable Spittoon
For your consideration:
Antique KNY-Scheerer Portable Medical Spittoon
This antique portable spittoon was originally intended for TB patients to spit their tuberculosis tained mucous into a safe and secure container rather than spitting on public sidewalks.
The words, "THE KNY-SCHEERER Co., NEW YORK, USA, BERLIN, GERMANY" is stamped under the lid.
The size is 4-3/8 inches long by 2-3/4 wide and fits nicely in the palm of the hand.
The Nickle/Chrome finish is shiny with minor scuffs and usual wear from having been used and handled regularly.
The door/lid latches and springs open with wase and stays firmly latched.
The door latch has been reattached and soldered back on the cannister and works perfectly.
There is moderate pitting on the funnel surface and minor dimples in the canister surface on the back.
