I love using old iron chains like this around my old barn. The chain makes a striking way to hang things, and against a white wall a loop of old rusty chain like this looks beautiful. This twisted link chain came out of an old Virginia barn, and I believe that this chain is quite old, probably from the late 1800s or early 1900s. This chain was called a HOG TURNER. The farmer or veterinarian would loop the chain around a small pig or hog (or other animal) to be rolled or turned, whether for medical attention, birth, or other farm purposes. Very cool.
The chain is rusty, crusty, and has loads of patina. The chain is about 26 1/2" long with handle on each end that are about 4 3/8" long. The handles look a bit like a propeller with smooth ends. Most of the chain is 1/8" thick. There are two much longer links connecting the main chain with the handles. The whole thing weighs about 3 pounds.
