VERY NICE AND RARE (CIRCA 1915) 2 QUART LIGHTNING BUTTER CHURN WITH LABEL , THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND LIGHTNING CHURN I HAVE SEEN WITH A LABEL IN OVER 25 YEARS OF COLLECTING DAIRY ITEMS AND THE OTHER LABEL WAS ABOUT 1/2 GONE THIS ONE IS 99% INTACT. THIS LIGHTNING BUTTER CHURN WAS MADE BY THE STEWART SKINNER COMPANY IN WORCHESTER MASS. THIS CHURN IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION FOR BEING 100 YEARS OLD , THE JAR IS EXCELLENT, NO CRACKS AND JUST ONE SMALL CHIP ON GLASS RIM, THE TOP IS ALSO IN NICE CONDITION THERE ARE A FEW STRESS CRACKS AROUND TWO RIVETS BUT EVERYTHING IS STILL NICE AND TIGHT.
MOST GLASS CHURN COMPANIES OF THE TIME WERE USING WOOD FOR THEIR PADDELS BUT LIGHTNING CHURNS USED ALUMINUM PADDELS WHICH WERE EASIER TO CLEAN AND DIDN'T BREAK OR CRACK LIKE THE WOODEN PADDELS. THIS CHURN MEASURES 12 INCHES TALL AND 4 3/4 INCHES SQUARE. The item "Antique 2 Quart Lightning Butter Churn with Label made by Stewart Skinner Co" is in sale since Sunday, December 10, 2017.
