Wooden spatula, stirrer or paddle with a hole at the end of the handle for hanging.
The wooden spatula was used for making candy at Ott Candy Company in Canon City, Colorado. William F. Ott was opened the business circa 1905, and was the candymaker. The business closed for several years in the 1940s after Ott's death. It was re-opened in 1943 by his nephew, Raymond Bangeman. Bangeman continued the family's candy-making tradition into the 1950s. (See the Ott Candy Company, William F. Ott and Raymond Bangeman lexicon records for a more detailed history of the family and the business).
