This antique bent wood butter churn has charm written all over it. It measures about 23 inches tall and about 16 inches square. It has all the hardware on the outside--the crank, gears and worn handle on one side, and the drain spout on the other side. The wood flat lid easily lifts off. the wood is in great shape. T are NO mechanisms inside the churn so could be used as a neat little storage area. T used to be a knob on top, and it could easily be reattached. T is a crack in the wood at the top of the curved piece above the hand crank. Because the legs are firmly attached in other locations, I don't believe t is any danger of it greatly weakening the legs. I have used this piece as an primitive little end table, and its wood and metal make it a great authentic piece used in a new way.
