Butter Churn     Exhibit 3

     This is another example of an upright butter churn. This one is the stereotype of what a butter churn from the Colonial Period looked like.
     As you can see in the images below, the lid lifted off by sliding up the handle to permit access to the inside. The churn was constructed by a white cooper like any barrel or other wooden container of staves held in place by wooden straps.
