Antique Country Primitive Hand Carved Wooden Grain Scoop


Here's an old, hand carved wooden grain scoop in very good condition! We found this in an old barn not long ago and its well-preserved and has loads of character! It was carved out of a hardwood, amazingly enough, Oak, we believe. It has incredible graining with rich coloring. After more than a century, it still even shows lots of carving detail.

The scoop measures 14 inches long, 5 1/8 inches wide and is about 2 3/4 inches high, when laying on a table. There is no dry rot, woodworms, or termite damage; it has a nice, smooth patina. It shows age and wear from use, namely an uneven opening at the mouth of the scoop and a few, small, blackened spots where it may have been used to move some hot embers around in a fireplace or stove. It does not smell of fire/smoke, however. There's a short age crack that runs from the opening 2 3/4" into the scoop; it's tight and not a structural concern.

Solid, rugged, and sound, this primitive, rustic piece is very nice. Wonderful to display in a dough bowl, grain bucket, or on its own! Guaranteed NOT to be one of those newly made scoops being sold these days! Shipped from Western New York.
