Description:
This rotary glass cutter features a rotating "magazine" of hardened steel cutters, and a rubber backing on the hub to keep it from slipping.

Known examples marked "Alex Rowland NY" with the patent date.

Note that there are very similar tools covered under a pair of 1922 patents granted to Carl Doerr: #1,421,921 and #1,424,625. While both were produced in the New York City area, it is not known if the two patented tools are related in any way.
