Sausage Stuffers (2)

Sausage stuffers were a kitchen implement. The stuffer consists of a tin syringe shaped exterior and a shaped hardwood plunger, which fits well into the syringe. The plunger has a round knob shaped handle with a neck that progresses to the shaped body. The syringe has a long tip presumably where a sausage casing would fit. The ground seasoned meat would be filled into the syringe and then the plunger would stuff the casing. 

Smith’s Tavern has two versions of this tool:
