A P W Paper Co ACME Albany NY 1894 Patent Toilet Tissue Holder Cutter Cast Iron

We have for your consideration an antique 'A. P. W. Paper Company 'Acme' Albany, N.Y.' wall-mounting paper holder with cutter. It has a faint patent date on the back '1894.' It is made of cast iron. It measures 6 1/2" wide and has two pair of mounting holes. It protrudes 5" from the wall. The paper holding paddle is spring loaded on the ends. We believe toilet paper was wrapped around this paddle and the serrated bar was for cutting the paper. Apparently, this piece pre-dates toilet paper rolls and perforated toilet paper.

This vintage toilet paper holder is pre-owned and was painted many years ago with white paint. Much of the white paint has worn off and the metal is rusty in places. This piece does not appear to function with a contemporary toilet paper roll.
