This scoop was in an old barn -- probably for scooping up animal feed. The wood has weathered to a wonderful gray with splits, but still strong enough to use. The tin has acquired a mottled patina and the nails are just plain rusty. It's almost 12'' in total length and is 4 3/4'' across at the widest point. You can just display this indoors or in the yard or actually use it -- maybe scooping out bird seed on your patio.
