I receieved an old utensil as a gift but do not know exactly how to use it or what specifically it is for..can you help ? It is about 15 inches long, oval in shape, hinged at one end in a clam-shell fashion with handles on each half . The handles are tipped with what appears to be Bakelite. On each shell is imprinted the words "" LA COTTA " as well
as " La Salute e nella cotta " and " Marchio Depositato ". Any information would be appreciated as to age and proper usage.
Thank you all in advance.
