It's a rug beater. I remember catching dust from my neighbors when they used theirs.

I believe grandma called a similar item her carpet beater. She would put here home made rag throw rugs over the clothes line and beat the he** out of them, to remove dirt/dust.

you beat me to it...I helped an auctioneer out for a time, every time one of those came up and he'd see it he'd say something along the lines of hide warmer or husband trainer.

That was my job when I was a kid. Mom would hang the rug on the clothesline and I would make the dust fly. I was too little to get the rug on and off the line, but I thought I was really doing something!

I remember my Grand mother using one just like that. Remember the old Bissell's carpet sweeper, my Dad called all carpet sweepers Bissell's no matter the brand. Do you remember the old wire cages on a handle used to get the most out of a bar of soap? My Grandmother made dish soap with one I have seen them made of plastic in later yrs. I hope I haven't ruined someone's tool of the day idea.

Carpet beater.

You'd hang a carpet or rug over a clothesline and beat the dust out of it.

Too easy.

Some day, rug beating will likely be considered a form of abuse. *lol*

That is why I take my litte rag rug to the local laundromat and toss it in a tumble washer with my work clothes. Works great. Don't forget when a little kid was playing king or queen and that was their septar.

Loren,
You've got too many cool tools!! If you and wifey ever move off the farm and have an auction... I just might have to make a trip to NY. :)

My mom would likely have considered that a "spanking tool". If we misbehaved - she'd grab the nearest thing... your hair, your ear, or whatever was closest to spank you with: a flyswatter, a hair-brush, a yardstick. She was very imaginative. (I'm secretly glad she DIDN'T have a rug beater. LOL)

BUTTTTT, the whole herd of us all turned out OK.
