Stands approx 21.5" to top of churn lid, but 41.25" to top of dasher. This would be on the larger size of churns. The lid is a slightly lighter color than churn as it was stained at some time (after it was retired I assume). The lid is oak, but harder to tell on the churn due to stain, but it is most likely oak as well. We focus on the highest quality display items like this.We probably pass up 40-50 antique churns until we see one we feel is truly display quality. It is in very good condition, but not perfect. The staved boards are pretty tight with only a slight bit of light seeping through some of the bottom slats. One bottom board has splintered & has some light whitish milk stain as it began to leak perhaps. The metal bands have original nails (1/4" head or so) & perhaps some later added smaller brad type nails (1/8"-1/16th heads) around the bands. A few of the added nails penetrate the wood slightly to the inside of the churn, so be careful if you clean inside the churn. The top three bands are quite firmly in place.
The lowest band is not as tight, but stays put pretty well. Please look over the multiple pictures taken for your consideration. I think I covered every angle of the churn in pictures. You can see some small paint dots on top of the churn lid & dasher which could be removed, but I just left churn exactly as I bought it. Let us know if you have any questions.
