Grasshopper? Hobby Horse?

Potato Sorter.
Lost River Museum.


  1. Can you please tell meaning of this thing . I can't able to understand . Nice capture.please Keep commenting in my blog because I love your comments.

    1. If you look at it from above, you see a couple of compartments and holes. Put the potatoes in the upper compartment and the really small potatoes fall through the holes to be sold as small ones. The remaining ones are big enough to sell as large potatoes.

  2. It does look like a grasshopper. Cute! Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  3. ...once a 'modern' potato sorter. How times have changed. Thanks Linda, enjoy!

    1. I had no idea what it was. A volunteer from the museum saw me looking at it and explained it to me.

  5. Hmm...potato sorter? I never would have guessed that one! Fun post.

    All the best Jan
