A curious flour sifter designed to be worn. A long rope loop, attached to either end of the hopper, allowed the device to be hung from the neck giving the user liberty of movement with the instrument conveniently placed at breast height. A simple crank handle turns the internal wooden mechanism that pushes the flour against the sifting screen, which is intact. The initials R.A. are impressed on each of the four sides of the hopper.
