A metal upholstery hammer with a semi-cream in color painted wooden handle that was used by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. Judging from the way the hammer was made by the wood carving/metal engraving, this more likely could have been hand made, as there is also no visible brand name. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.
