I see the old ones on Ebay fairly often.
I have not seen any new ones.
When I was little my grandmother used one to finish off all of the old bits of hand soap. She would shake it in the water until she got a soapy froth and then hand wash a small amount of clothes. In the winter she always had a folding wooden rack in the kitchen for the hand wash! She would be amazed by the granite, stainless steel, hardwood kitchens in new homes today!
