Ribbed Glass Base with Red Cast Iron Handle & Top

This is a wonderful old butter churn made by the

Standard Churn Company

of Wapakoneta , Ohio .

Sold by Sears, Roebuck and Company in 1946.

At that time Sears, Roebuck and Company

offered both 4 and 8 quart churns.

This is one of the rare 8 quart churns.

The Ribbed Glass Jar is tulip shaped and embossed "FILL TO " on one side and the number "8" (which is the quart size) is on another side. The "FILL TO " embossing was to keep the user from over filling the butter churn. Typically butter churns are designed to churn at around half of their capacity. An eight quart butter churn would churn 4 quarts of cream. The bottom of the glass jar has "PAT. APP. FOR SCC" embossed on the base. SCC stands for Standard Churn Company. The lid is made of tin with whey screens punched on the top of one side. The handle is made of cast iron as well as the crank with a red wooden handle for churning the butter. The gears are hidden by red painted covers that have a cast iron stem in the center holding the wooden paddle.

This churn is in very good original condition and stands about 14-1/4" high. The Ribbed Glass Jar has no breaks, flakes, chips or cracks and it shows normal wear as expected on the bottom. The red paint on the top shows some wear and the cover has a small ding on the corner. The red crank handle has great paint with hardly any wear. The tin top is in fabulous condition with normal wear. The wooden paddle is in terrific condition however t is a stain on one side of the wood paddle .

(Please see photos of all the details)

This is a great opportunity to own a fabulous antique butter churn in working condition.

This will be a excellent addition to your collection!
