Understanding the purpose of each heading in the detailed information page.



This indicates that the item was available in the antique or collectables market. It does not mean that it is 'old'. Some items enter the 2nd hand market very quickly.

All images are photographed on one of two white lace cloths. Exception: Iimages under UV light where a black background is used to emphasise the glow.


This indicates that the item was available in the general retail market, New in Box, rather than the antique or collectables market. Although it is common to find modern collectables in antique retail settings.
 
 
 
Value As I am a collector and not an antique dealer then retail values are not presented.
Description A brief description of the main features.
Material This loosely discribes the material used to produce the juicer. Eg Ceramic, Plastic - Bakelite, Glass - Pink. Metal - Iron with wood handle.
Hopefully I will be able to eventually be more specific about the materials used. eg. When a ceramic is actually porcelain, bone china, clays, etc.
When colours are described they are as I see them. You may see the colours differently. Be sure to allow for how my camera and more especially your computer sees and displays the colour.
  Measurements of handmade items or items manufactured over a long period of time can vary noticeably.
  • Measurements can be used to distinguish between similar items or reproductions. The measurements can be used to identify 'orphan' parts.
  • The measurements used on this web site should be considered as accurate.
  • It is worth noting that some of the measurement used in reference books such as Mary Walker's book "and Many More Reamers" are often rounded off or are traditional measurements resulting from original promotional material and are not necessarily accurate.
  • However, there are times when the measurements in books are wrong, and if not wrong, suggests an alternate sized specimen. Some juicers are produced in sets of sizes.
Diameter/
Width
Diameter measures distance across a 'round' item. If not the widest point the location for the measurement will be indicated
Width measures shortest distance across a 'straight' sided item.
These measurements are made using a vernier caliper or height gauge (when diameter exceeds the dimensions of the caliper, the height gauge has a perpendicular offset) and are accurate ± 1 mm.
Length Length measures longest distance across/along an item.
For 'jugs' it measures from the end of the handle to the tip of the pouring spout.
Length is not given if it does not add anything significant to the information.
These measurements are made using a height gauge (this intrument has a perpendicular offset) and are accurate ± 1 mm.
Height

The height is measured to the main part of the juicer, usually the top of the reamer, unless otherwise stated.
The height of the individual parts of sets is usually self explanatory.
These measurements are made using height gauge (this instrument has a perpendicular offset) and are accurate ± 1 mm.

Weight Given that weight can vary this lists at least one example and is an indication only.
The weight of the individual parts of sets is usually self explanatory.
Because of rounding off/up the combined weight may vary from the total of the weights of the individual parts.
Weights were originally measured using a triple beam scale accurate to the nearest gram. I am now measuring weights using a digital scale accurate to the nearest gram. These measurements are useful for identication of similar items.
Maker If known the manufacturer's name is provided. The name may sometimes be the distributor's or retailer's name.
In modern times it has been noted that indistinguishable items made in China are sold using multiple brand names.
Mary Walker No. Listing numbers in Mary Walker's book "and Many More Reamers", 1998
If not listed or colour variant not listed, etc. there may be some hints.
Retail price  Prices are only listed on NEW juicers to indicate original and/or possible values. This could be used to determine if some re-selling prices are reasonable or excessive. Prices are usually listed according to the country they were purchased in, although the default is AU$.
Date Only listed on NEW juicers to indicate a time frame for when the item was available in the general retail market rather than the antique or collectables market.
If a date or dates of manufacture of vintage items is/are known then this will be recorded in the notes section.
Notes Lists additional information including similar or related items.
This area may also contain links to similar items or comparison items.
