Found in Middleboro, Mass barn this handsome butter churn was affectionately known as The Lightning Churn by Porter Blanchard and Sons of Nashua, New Hampshire in 1890. It is number one with 4 ½ gallon capacity. This beauty has period stenciling with the name The Lighting Churn and the Red Cow on the verso. Its the beauty of this piece that hits you first. As you lift open the beautifully crafted and russet-painted lid a puff of the sweet, delightful odor of last summer's butter that slowing breaths into your nose.

This churn was remarkably quiet and folks would sit there and turned and turned and listened to the "slosh-slop" until the beautiful hour when the butter was ready to be taken out and the buttermilk ready for drinking. Yes this butter churn may not be lighting fast under todays fast track society, but it certainly strikes appreciation much quicker than those plastic margarine containers, and oh what an attractive addition to any kitchen. 14 ½ tall 16 long and 11 1/2 inches wide.
