EMBOSSED GLASS TRANSITIONAL BUTTER CHURN Rare. An antique Dazey 4 quart glass butter churn with cast iron geared beater attached to a 4 blade wooden paddle. The glass jar is embossed "40" above a circle that is embossed along the inside perimeter and reads Dazey Churn & Mfg. " Below the circle it is embossed "Made In America. The bottom of the jar has a suction scar.The iron gear wheel is marked "40G" and the handle is marked "40H" on the back side. No other marks are found. It stands 14" tall with the beater in place and 9-1/2" tall to the top of the rim of the jar.
The jar measures 6" x 6" at the bottom. This is NOT one of the many reproductions out there. Prior to 1920 the churns lacked a screen on the cover as this one does, indicating it to most likely be the original top. There are straw marks and bubbles in the glass and the bottom surface of the jar shows wear from years of sliding across shelves and counters which you expect to find on an antique utilitarian jar. There is some old cloth tape wrapped around the shaft by the gear which is being left as found.
The wooden handle on the crank has a split and there is a split in the wood of the paddle where it attaches to the shaft. It doesn't affect the integrity. The cover is in very good condition with nice patina. The inside rim of the jar has roughness from years of use otherwise the glass is very good.
A nice example and a very nice addition to a collection.
