I believe this old grain scoop, with turned wood handle, likely dates to the 19th century, and I think it is just a gorgeous object! The handle extends through a hole in the flat, semi-circular wooden base of the scoop like a plug, with its terminus visible on the interior of the scoop. Meanwhile, the beautifully shaped tin of the scoop wraps around the sides of the base, overlapping the the front and joined with a nail. Nothing extraneous, just a wonderful example of stunning form following function, with a fantastic patina from years of use.
This scoop is in great shape and ready to use for scooping grain or flour or meal, or just hanging on the wall. It measures 8 3/4" long x 3 1/4" wide x 2" deep.
