Darn, been at family Christmas with no Internet. I knew what that was when I saw it. I think I used one at Grandpa's farm when I visited.

fits your decor nicely!

I have been looking for a quilt like yours. Hard to find in a twin size. I LOVE yours.

Hi Gina

The quilt is an actual Amish quilt - The name is "Grandma's Fan". I knocked on the door to a farm house outside of Buffalo, NY in the Amish countryside. They had a sign that just said Quilts. Went in and they showed me a stack of quilts about 3 feet high .. They pulled them back, one at a time until I found this one ... and bought it.. I also purchased another for our bedroom a couple of years later .. it was the same house - the whole family makes quilts during the winter .. No electric .. Father sewed together on a peddle sewing machine..

Hi Gina

We have one room in our home that is Amish (guest room). We've had the grain scoop on our wall for about 15 years or more. It's a little different from yours, but it sure makes a great holder for our Amish books.
This scoop with the tines resembles ones you find in Wisconsin that were used for picking cranberries. I'd guess yours was used in some similar fashion; there's really no point in having tines if you're just scooping grain.

I am just a city girl.. I would have thought dust pan as well, and did, and was given a "Close, but no cigar"

which is OK, cause I don't like cigars

I agree if I would have bought that at a fisherman/nautical themed store I would have not been able to guess it. I would have been saying fish scooper
post more Wotzit some day, they are fun. Take care.

it's commonly called a grain scoop (or feed scoop).
the company I work for still makes them out of steel.

ah, but the wooden ones have so much character!

This one has a basic shape, but is crude. Sort of made out of what scraps were lying around. The sides have a purposeful shape on the scoop end, but the rest is unsymetrical. It almost looks hand fitted for what bit they had, rather than shaping the bits to fit in a specific spot.

Its almost like the feel of driftwood. smooth, but no consistency. It weighs a ton too. I suspect its old maple.

OK So I was Late. However, can you beat this?

I picked it up as a teen-ager on Puluwat in the Carolines, about 60 years ago - Ron Mayo

No. it's carved from a coconut palm trunk. It scoops dried chunks of coconut meat. It is in an area with very few fiberglass travel trailers. - Ron Mayo

I went to a "Nostalgia Show on Sunday, with over 165 dealers showing vintage remorabilia, and one dealer had a scoop on display. He was asking $70.00. I thought that that was a bit much as it wasn't in very good condition.
