Separators

I stopped by one of my customer's office today.  They service and recondition separators.  Yes, just like the old one we know of but these are much more modern and still very much in use today.  In the entry way to their office they have an antique DeLeval separator holding an office phone.

So I thought it would be a good time for everyone to share their separator collections!

Sorry the attached pictures aren't that great.  I had to snap fast because the receptionist was wondering what I was doing.

RE:Separators

It is surprising what you find in offices Drew, good idea to use one as a phone stand.

Here is a M-H glass seperator advertising sign in my office!! a few of these have appeared in Massey collections from Canada in recent years. It shows the popular No 9 in action.

RE:Separators

Drew,

I thought the Massey Collectors of North America would be sharing their M-H separator collections with you following your request at the start of this thread. I hope they are reserving the best collections until last, as I know there are some very nice examples in collections in both the US and Canada,  so to start you off here is a photograph of a very small M-H cream separator collection here in Lincolnshire, England.

Malcolm.

RE:Separators

Here are two models of sperators.  The first, the floor standing MH "Robin" and the second the table top version.

RE:Separators

Robin was the precursor to the model #7.  The tabletop model is the #8.

RE:Separators

Collecting  M-H cream separator oil tins compliments any separator display so here is one of the early ones.

RE:Separators

The later style of M-H separator oil was seen in the yellow tins and available in two sizes of one pint and one quart, these were then marked with M-H -F after 1953, the most popular of the two was the quart tin as shown here with a separator wrench.
