Metal Shoo-Fly Screen, Domed, Antique

  • Small domed metal Shoo Fly screen, also known as a food cover, or food tent. A primitive antique, it is most likely from the early 1900s. Designed to keep flies away from the food placed underneath. It has a wooden knob at the top with a metal disc base. The screen has a darkened patina.

    6 1/4" wide x approximately 4 1/4" high (including knob) (16 x 11 cm). 

    Screen is no longer a perfect dome, and has a few small holes here and there. There is some rust is on the metal disc under the knob and on the lower rim.
