Customer Question

I have an old butter churn with a gallon square jar. The jar has an Art Deco look with raised stripes on three sides in the center of the jar.
It appears that the llid and movement had a type of silver coating that is mostly warn off. The crank handle says 40H. There is a 40 on the housing of the crank shaft and on the largest gear it has a 40, a W and a G.
Four wooden, well grained wood paddles are in the jar.
Have I given enough information to assist with identification of the manufacturer or time period of mfg.?

Thank you for the detailed description. However, in order to properly assess what you have, seeing image of the churn will be the most helpful in determining what you have and they age. At your convenience, please send photos. It does not cost extra to post pictures here.
