Original antique 25 gallon "Superior Sanitary Mixer" stoneware butter churn vessel by the Superior Churn & MFG Co. Patent dated Dec 13, 1910. Massive hand made pottery vessel measures 25" tall x 20" diameter. 11 outer diameter top opening.
It weighs almost 77 pounds. This is the stoneware vessel only, with no frame or lid. Originally would have been affixed with metal bands and secured to a metal tumbling frame. Original lid would have been thick glass secured with clamps that attach to the frame. It has the original silvered brass spigot at the bottom front.
There are several cracks visible as you can see from the pictures but it is extremely sturdy and stable. Those are normal glaze flaws from the manufacturing process and only visible on the exterior surface.Aside from that the vessel is in fantastic original condition with no evidence of any repairs that I can see.
