Made of wood. This press has a mushroom head (rounded on one side and flat on the other). There is a long, removable handle with a small knob on the tip. The handle also has three etched in lines, two near the base and one in the middle of the handle.
There are small green dots on the mushroom head as well as on the knob of the handle. The handle also has white residue near its base, perhaps old pieces of garlic that have never been cleaned off.
Made in Greece and used as a manual garlic press. It is unknown when the Kouimelis family moved to America.
