Click To Enlarge

"Penn" Fluting Machine by American Machine Co.  This Penn hand crank fluter hails from Philadelphia and is in super nice original condition and will clean up to be even nice! It is one of just a handful of machine-type crank fluters designed with a clamp to securely attach it to the edge of the worktable, thereby attempting to solve what undoubtedly was the problem of the "roaming" tabletop fluter. They were designed to crimp, ruffle and press little pleats into starched fabric.  Fluters were used for collars, cuffs, etc. These vintage tools were an invention that saw their heyday in America from the 1860's through the 1880's. Measures 8 3/4" W x 5 1/2" D x 7" H.
