I recently bought a beautiful Union Stoneware butter churn at an estate sale.
Here is the information:
1.) It has one slightly nicked area on the bottom rim, and slight nick on the upper rim, otherwise looks great
2.) I’m, of course, wondering what you would estimate its worth to be, also its time period and rarity. There is no lid or actual churn, just the large canister part. The previous owner was using it to store feather dusters, a cane, and a couple of yard sticks.
3.) I live in Bellville, Texas. We are not far from the Round Top Trade Days where it is quite likely the previous owner acquired the churn.
Thank you for what you do. This is really beautiful and I was delighted to pick it up this weekend.
Brena, you have a Minnesota Stoneware Company 4 gallon elephant ear churn that was producted between 1895 & 1906. With the two small chips the value is between $275 & $300 without the lid. Hope this helps. Al Kohlman
