What a wonderful piece of 19th century Americana. This Antique Primitive Standing Butter Churn even comes with Dasher. I might assume it is original to the piece as it was when we found it in an old Connecticut barn. The butter churn is painted black with colorful Pennsylvania style tulip and heart design on the front. Colors are deep aqua, red and white on bronze over greenish (mustard color) backwash. I believe this was painted at a later date; where it has chipped off the underneath color appears to be an age related blue, most butter churns in that time period were painted blue. The interior is unpainted. Lid has opening for dasher pole and an attached wooden handle to lift lid from barrel. Butter Churn barrel measures 22 1/2 inches tall (25 inches to the top of lid handle); the bottom is 11 inches in diameter. Dasher is 43 ½ inches tall with crossed wood base, crossbars measure 9 inches long by ¾ inch thick. This fits comfortably inside the barrel; dasher shows age related use. It is wonderful! It’s not often that one finds a butter churn with dasher. The Butter Churn is an attractive piece. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State.
