To operate: open and place a slice of bread inside resting on the wood at the bottom, and it is held in place by the rough places on the sides, close it again, and slice in the center with a knife, making two narrow slices of bread from one slice. Sits on four rubber feet, stands freely - 7-1/2 inches height, 5 inches width, 1-1/2 inches depth at top.
Condition: used, white rubber on feet are weak/aged, center cutting board has been sliced into during previous use.
