Those manufactured beginning around 1922 carried the month/day/year of the patent, i. This item is in vintage condition, has visible signs of age and wear. No visible cracks or chips in glass.Measures approx: 14" x 8" x 6. Characteristics which make this item authentic include. 1 A long instead of short crank handle. 2 Paddles made with original, distinctively GRAINED wood (not new, smooth maple, which means they've been replaced). 3 No "Dazey" on top gear Dazey didn't make the bullseye-style churn with a "Dazey"-imprinted gear on top - if you see this, be suspicious! 4 Metal gear top is not distressed nor acid-washed to look old (instead of actually being old). 5 This particular model started production around 1912, not 1922 as with so many listings. (Churns produced from 1922-forward carried the month/day/year patent date). 6 This has S-shaped handles used on earlier model churns. 7 Bubbles in the glass (the more bubbles in the glass, the older the jar).
