We are happy to offer this unusual antique butter churn. This primitive churn features a rectangular wood box with a rounded bottom. The box is supported by 4 simple splayed legs fastened directly to the side of the main case. A very nice molding runs around the perimeter of the box along the top edge. The square lid had been hand planed to create a tapered edge on each side.
A raised wood handle is on the top of the lid. The unusually bent shaped metal crank runs into the box and is fastened to the pair of wood churn / paddles. The reddish brown paint appears to be original.
If not original, it is an old finish. Overall this piece is in very good shape, although there is some small separation / wear on one side where the curved bottom is attached to the case.Material: Mostly Wood with metal handle. Dimensions: Box is 14" x 14". Overall height is 31 Tall.
Width at tip of legs is 20. NOTE: Most of our pieces are unique, one of a kind pieces, and are subject to prior sale on other channels. We try to be as clear as possible in the photos attached.
