Handheld Rotary Mixer

Description
Handheld rotary style squeeze beater or food mixer, sheet metal. Movable arm with coiled spring set vertically above two smaller cog wheels which, when squeezed, enables the mixing motion. Two bulb-shaped mixing components, each with four wings of bent sheet metal. Bent metal loop at top for hanging, circular red plastic at joint. Outer side of movable arm is marked: "ONE-HAND WIP"; "PAT. PEND./EAGLE PRECISION MFG. CORP.-N.Y." The Eagle corporation trademark is marked to the left. Patent under this name could not be located.
