Great find - a vintage tin butter churn. Handle, lid, handle, body and paddles intact. Base missing. We will build a base so it doesn't roll over. Butter related posts from my blog: Butter Pat Cutters and Wooden Butter Stamps.
Finally found a great web site with a photo of a tin butter churn showing the base. Check this out: Dairy Antiques. Great photos, amazing write ups. The Link page attached to this site leads to even more photos from other collectors. My pictures aren't even a drip in a giant bread pan. Doug and Linda' Dairy Antiques Site is a huge resource for this topic.
