This is a rather cool old item, it is a floor model ice cream or butter churn. It has a metal frame with wooden slats at the base and a large wooden paddles. You turn the paddles by means of the large crank at the top. This is a bit unusual in that it has two handles instead of one. It originally would have had a tin or metal container that would surround the paddle, and would be where you added the ingredients.

It is not marked as far as I can see. In trying to research the origins of this I found a great web site: Doug and LIinda's Dairy web site. I saw one pictured there similar to this one (but complete with tin) and it states that it is a Taylor Babbitts Perfection made in Abington, Ill about 1907. I don't know if that is exactly what this one is, but it looks very similar. It was billed as being able to make ice cream as well as churn butter.

It is a cool piece for display. It measures about 27" tall (with the handles straight ) 14 1/2" wide, 12 1/2" deep.
