Rare Collectible Vintage Salesman Sample & Display Model Grain Separator

Made in USA, probably late 1800’s – early 1900’s
Construction: all wood
Condition: mechanism working – Vintage, probably used but very well looked after – therefore in almost pristine condition

Attention Collectors!
Here you have a very rare and sought-after Salesman’s Sample Wood Grain Separator. In very good condition and with a wood mechanism that is still functional.
Regrettable there is no label of maker or date.
Salesman’s samples were a common item in the early 20th century, as salesmen needed a smaller version of their product to show off to retailers, and retailers in turn needed a way to demonstrate the features of larger items, which might need to be ordered from the manufacturer, to their customers.
Many salesman's samples were highly detailed, with additional marketing copy pointing out important features of the product.
Salesman’s samples were probably about 1/6 scale to 1/8 scale, and are highly prized and difficult to find.
