Stripper Model - Push Type, Savage, Melbourne, circa 1861 Object Reg. No: ST 008144

This model of a push type stripper was invented and constructed by Mr. R. Savage, Melbourne, Victoria, about 1861.

Savage's claim to this invention as an original one has since become doubtful. A stripper of very similar design (a gallic stripper of roman times) is illustrated in J. C. Loudon's Encyclopaedia of Agriculture dated 1844.
