It has been on the counter in my primitive kitchen... Condition: mysteriously, the interior of this looks like it has never held milk or cream or anything - it is immaculate (see photo).The cover has been replaced with a non-original one and the front metal barrel hoop also... With old jute rope to hold the barrel portion together - very clever. Graphics are vivid and clear, the crank works well and turns the flappers inside, and there is a plug hole in the rear to allow the whey to be poured off. This is a great primitive that I hope gets a new home where it can be appreciated. Buyers, Please Note: The items I sell are "used, " or "formerly owned, " or "vintage, " or perhaps antique. NONE OF THESE ITEMS ARE EVER 100% PERFECT - they may have slight signs of wear, - scratches, dimples, bumps, rubs, etc. Even brand new items have some imperfections - and these old eyes may miss some once in a while. So I rarely use the word "PERFECT" when describing items that I sell - because if you look hard enough a flaw can be found in anything. I strive to accurately describe what I sell. If I spy a damage or a major imperfection I will clearly state it and if possible photograph it for the listing, too. However, some'flaws' are not damage - they are either normal signs of usage or a condition inherent in the item, like the fine cracks in an oil painting: the older the item, the more likely these signs of usage will be in evidence. Some may be too small to be photographed.
I strive to find and mention these conditions - but if I miss something you find to be significant please just bring it to my attention and we will work it out to your 100% satisfaction. My buyers' opinion is very important to me. That said, I cannot offer you'perfect' items unless they are new, unopened, or in their original packaging from the factory - so please do not expect'perfection' UNLESS the item is described as MINT - NEW IN BOX! A vintage or antique item will be described fully and as accurately by me as I can but I may miss something by accident.And I usually will not offer discount for you to keep it. Ave ALL packing materials and the original box, 4 Be prepared to take photographs of the damaged item AND the box + packing because this may be required by the carrier for a claim to be processed.
