Antique Primitive Staved Wooden Butter Churn; Iron Banded Rustic Country Churner with Dasher


Here's a rustic, 19th Century wooden butter churn in very good, well-preserved condition! It was found in an old barn and is fresh to the market following decades of forgotten storage!

Made of pine staves, it has four iron bands that keep it tight and secure. The surface is old and distressed, it shows wonderful wear patterns and has an old patina. The wood is free from active woodworms, termites, and dry rot. The surface has all the charms of old wood, including stains, rust marks from the bands, inactive worm holes, nice graining, and rich, natural coloring. Nothing has been added to enhance its appearance. The dasher stick is newly made as they often were broken during the churning process.

This style of churn is sometimes referred to as a "piggin" due to the raised stave it has that can be used as a handle. Along with its dasher, this churn is wonderfully primitive and absolutely beautiful!

Overall, it measures 33 1/2 inches high including the dasher stick; 20 3/4 inches without it. The opening of churn is 5 3/4 inches in diameter; the bottom measures 6 3/4 inches across at its widest.

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!
