​Dry Goods Twine Dispenser

This is a unique piece, dating from the late 19th to early 20th C.  It is a string dispenser that was used in a dry goods store.  The ball of string or twine was housed inside with the end of the string coming through a hole in the top.  The heart shaped brass and steel cutter would allow a clerk to pull just enough string through and cut it for wrapping up goods.  Made of oak or ash with a brass heart with steel cutting blade.  A unique piece!  Measuring __" tall by __" wide.
