REX antique paper cutter. 
They were orriginally used in meat stores.A great find and valued for years.
I found this at a garage sale years ago.
  I had never really thought of it as vintage until I looked it up on line.  
When the kids were little I kept drawing paper on it. 
 It works perfect in my kitchen for my large rolls of aluminum  foil. 

I looked for it on line and found it's value at around $175.  I think I paid $5. for it...

This is a great piece, I seem to remember someone else having found one in the last couple of months, but I have never seen one around here...this is a neat item....now just get you a roll of white butcher paper and you are set! Have a great VTT!

That is so neat!! I see in the post before this one all of your yummy canning! I love canning (I can my organic garden so most is organic). This year I put up roasted roma tomatoes, peach rum jam (the best ever!), strawberry jam, sweet lemon cukes, sweet bananna peppers, and the mango/pineapple chutney in the newer ball book. I will have to do a search on your cinnamin cuke rings!!!!

Hi Debbie...thanks for visiting me today!
I love your paper holder. I used to have a little country store and had one of these on my counter with my paper along with an old string holder. Love it! (Don't have mine anymore, must have sold it).

My grandparents had one of these in the little country that they ran. They sliced slab bacon and bologna fresh for their customers and wrapped it in white butcher paper--now I wonder what ever happened to the paper cutter! I'm constantly surprised at what some of these old things are worth these days!
