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:
T143’s syringe appears to be handmade constructed of thin tin tube, funnel and tip with welded handles.
T145 is of a thicker tin tube, funnel and tip with no handles.
