Here's a rustic, 19th Century wooden butter churn in very good, well-preserved condition! It was found in an attic and is fresh to the market following decades of forgotten storage!
Made of pine staves, it has three iron bands that keep it tight and secure. The surface is old and distressed, it shows wonderful wear patterns and has an old patina. In addition, this churn has folksy, Pennsylvania Dutch style decorations painted all the way around the exterior. The wood is free from active woodworms, termites, and dry rot. The surface has all the charms of old wood, including stains, nice graining, signs of wear, and rich, natural coloring. The fitted splash cover has a cute little handle, adding even more charm. Even the old dasher is included!
Overall, it measures 26 3/4 inches high including the dasher stick; 18 inches without it. The opening of churn is 7 1/4 inches in diameter and then the churn widens out to 9 3/4 inches at the bottom. It has a nice, graduated shape and is marked 1888.
Solid, sound and rugged; with proper care, this churn will last another 100 years! If you like authentic country antiques, this is a very nice old butter churn that you'll be proud to decorate your home with! Guaranteed old and authentic! You won't be disappointed in this!
