You win, but its a crumby prize.. nuttin! But play anyway. I am curious how many folks know when I hadn't a clue.

Strolling thru an old junk store here in Quartzsite (Which is about all there is to do here, so I do it a lot!) I came across a table full of these "things" All different sizes, Some ornately decorated and personalized, some rough like this one, some more boxy and perfect, some with straighter divisions, but all appeared to serve the same purpose.

I hadn't a clue WHAT that purpose was, but it clicked that I had one for it. Its an antique, so it wasn't cheap, but I had to have it as I love old stuff like this. Its the right color for my decor, and, once again, it is perfect for what I use it for.

OK, I'll tell you what it is used for now in the next post, but you gotta guess what it WAS used for long ago. (I asked, I know, I went "Duh!")

WOTZIT?

with a cat in the "house" it is hard to keep him from sitting on the laptop as the only flat spot I can stow it in is also under "his" window he likes to look out. I was constantly moving the thing out of his way. There was really no other spot to put it for storage except in my pantry cupboard.. and that was a royal pain.

This looks nice and serves a purpose.. what the heck.

By how flat it is on the open end and what looks like a handle on the other end i'm guessing it's a very old "Dust Pan"

Gina,
Its really nice looking, great wood.
I am sure it is a scoop. Like Ken said, for corn, beans, or even livestock meal.
Good find,
Marjie

I am thinking that Ken C gets the big and mysterious prize. See link.

Gina, hope you paid less than $76.

I guessed that it was a grain scoop. Do I get a prize?

Too funny, Alf S., but surely of the right time period!!

Gina, I love what you did with the scoop. Looks great, very inventive "repurposing."

ding ding ding! Yep, Ken wins! Its a Grain Scoop. Do you feel all warm and fuzzy? Thats your prize!

I didn't even come close to guessing, mostly because the shop I got it at sold mostly old lobster fishermans stuff. Traps, floats etc. I was trying to think of how it related to fishing, but it didn't.

Thank you for your comment, Ken. I have a gazillion pics of the inside of this rig. I won't bore everyone else with them tho, I have posted many. Do a search.

I live in it, so there are added niceties to make it more functional and comfy.

Dave, yes, I paid much less for it. Maybe I should go buy them up and sell them on your link site!

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.

fits your decor nicely!

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