Antique Country Primitive Staved Wooden Butter Churn with Old Blue Paint, 1800s Picture(s) and Description:
Here's an authentic, 19th Century, wooden butter churn in very good, well-preserved condition. It's made of pine staves and has three iron bands that keep it tight and secure. We found it in an old barn where it had been forgotten for generations and it's untouched and just as it was when we discovered it. It shows lots of age and wear and has a fabulous, weathered look. Best of all, this churn has original, old blue paint, making it a very desirable piece for those who furnish their homes with as-found, country antiques. Once a common household fixture, it's now a primitive relic that has tremendous decorative appeal. The dasher stick appears to have been made from a tree branch while the churn itself is constructed much like a barrel. Even the splash cover looks to have been made by hand. As for size, this butter churn stands about 34 1/2 inches tall including the stick and about 19 3/4 inches tall without it. Not including the cover, the top of the churn has a 6 3/4 inch diameter while the bottom has a diameter of 8 1/4 inches. Solid, rugged, and sound, it weighs nearly 10 pounds. The wood is in very good shape and is free of woodworms, termites and dry rot. Still dusty from the barn, it just needs to be wiped down with a wet cloth. It's one of our nicest "barn finds" in quite some time! Country antiques in old blue paint are scarce and are good investments! Wouldn't this churn look wonderful in your home? We offer it up for bids without a hidden reserve! Good luck! Froo www.froo.com | Froo Cross Sell, Free Cross Sell, Cross promote, eBay Marketing, eBay listing Apps, eBay Apps, eBay Application
