Antique Primitive Feed Scoop Metal and Wooden Handle Southeastern Pennsylvania
Description: A beautiful antique primitive feed scoop. The piece which is made of a boat shaped tin or light metal attached to a half moon wooden base with an attached handle. The metal portion is attached to the wooden portion with rivets. The handle has a nice dark patina from use and the metal portion shows signs of soiling. The entire piece has been lacquered to preserve it, which makes it look great and gives it a nice darker patina. This is a nice old scoop that is in great condition after being around for what we believe could be over 100 years. Just a great primitive antique piece to add to your collection. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Uncertain but most likely sometime in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: It is ~10 3/4" long, ~4 1/2" at its widest, with the wood half moon being ~3" high. The piece itself weighs ~9 ounces.
Condition: The piece is in good condition with no breaks. The piece is missing one of the strips that holds the metal portion to wooden portion on the top and has been repaired by driving a nail near the top edge of the wood to hold the metal to the wood. The handle has a nice dark patina from use and the metal portion shows soiling especially near the wooden portion. The entire piece was lacquered sometime in the past to preserve it and give it a nice dark patina. Other than that the piece shows honest wear consistent with normal use over the years. This is a nice piece of Americana, which would make a nice addition to your collection of primitives. Please view photos for additional condition information.
