Antique Hand Crank Oak Wooden Barrel STAR Butter Churn Old Primitive Farm Decor Picture(s) and Description:
Up for bids at auction: Up for bids is this large, antique, hand crank Oak Barrel Butter Churn. This great looking old churn is complete with all of the original parts and stand; 100% old and authentic. Circa 1890's. It is in wonderful, original condition with old painted lettering on both the barrel and the stand and has not been restored or polished. I did wipe the dust off for the pictures to show the wonderful, old wood patina. This is a Red Top, STAR Brand, Oak Butter Churn and was sold by mail order catalog in the late 1800s; offered for the bargain price of $2.85 in the 1896 Sears & Roebuck Catalog. Both the churn and the stand are in solid, stable condition and look great. The lid does unscrew from the top and the barrel is very clean inside, there are no dashers with this style of churn and butter was made by filling the barrel about half full with cream and rotating the barrel by turning the handle. It churned by allowing the cream to fall from one end of the barrel to the other. For you homesteading and back-to-basics folks, the barrel is still liquid tight so the churn could be used. Overall, the churn and stand measure approx 34 inches tall, 24 inches wide, and 24 inches deep.
