Although we could find no one willing to try it out, some clever inventor decided that a hand-cranked agitator would be superior to the tried & true "plunger" style butter churn, so here it sits, a relic of a bygone era before supermarkets and refrigeration! Hand-made by the local barrel cooper in an oval shape for reasons unknown to this writer.
Circa 1870s.
Measures 19 x 16 x 17.
