Description

Antique Grain Thresher | Lila

Dating from the 18th Century wooden grain threshers were embedded with flints or sharpened stones.  Used to remove the grain from ears of wheat in an agricultural setting.  These were designed by the Romans to be pulled by donkeys over the cut wheat to help remove the wheat from the chaff and the ears from the stalks.

This item is ancient and is in used and imperfect condition with missing flints, rust marks, deep gouges, paint splashes, and stains as it was used as an agricultural tool and dragged around a field and stored in a barn for it’s entire life.  Please expect historic woodworm holes and worn condition.

Use as decorative item, mounted or leaning against the wall.
