The butter wheel or paddle is in very good condition. It would probably work once again as a butter paddle but the butter churn would have to match up the mount on the end of this piece. One of the paddles is cracked but still intact because the wooden arm mount extends onto both pieces. Another paddle has a little crack at the top. The metal on the paddle is rusty. Other than this there are no breaks or repair marks on the piece. The decorative possibilities for this piece are many. The paddle would make a great chandelier base to run cordage or wiring through and hang it from the ceiling. It could also make a great shelf sitter display piece. Butter wheels like this are extremely hard to find. The fact that the arms are intact makes the condition of this piece very unique. The collector will appreciate this piece for its condition and design. While many churns had practically some variation of the same parts, those same parts are very unique - one-of-a-kind.
It weighs 32.3 oz.
The churn measures 10.75" tall x 12 3/8" wide across from the end of one paddle to the end of the other paddle.
The year in this listing is an estimate based on similar items and tools.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description of an item you are interested in please contact me.
***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
