Pastry fluter

Description:

Food preparation was labour intensive during the Victorian period as all foods were unprocessed and had to be prepared daily.

 

This tool would have been used to create a decorative scalloped edge on pastry. This pastry fluter is made of brass and has a wheel at one end and a semi-circular fluted cutter at the other.
