It holds about 26 gallons.In the 1868 patent papers Samuel Whipple of Orville, California proposes the idea of a box shaped butter churn that revolved on trunnions from diagonal corners. His patent also showed a chamber to hold warm water to make churning easier in cold weather. A second patent was granted to David Curtis of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin on July 7, 1885. And dealt with improvements in the sealing of the churn lid and a drain through one of the corner supports. This second patent was assigned in two thirds to Oscar Cornish and Walter Greene.
These men formed Cornish, Curtis and Greene Mfg. There are no paddles inside this churn. The item "Cornish Curtis & Green No. 1 WHIPPLES BUTTER CHURN" is in sale since Friday, November 8, 2019.
