This is a wonderful Antique Cheese Turning Churn Handle from India with a unique Carved Dragon Head Spout. One end of the Indian wood churn handle is tied to rope or cord, and the rope is in turn tied to a post, or some other fixed object. The churn's stick passes through the hole in the wood handle, with the churning end inserted into the cheese container. There is another churning rope tied around the churn stick in such a way that the two ends of the rope are held (one each) in the cheese maker's two hands. Alternately pulling one end of the rope and then the other towards oneself causes the churning stick to twist back and forth, churning the liquid into cheese. The spout at the end has a grooved out channel allowing the whey to pour out. Making ornate carved wood cheese churn handle handles has become on of the distinctive mediums for expressing village artisans. This One of a Kind beautiful and ornate carved cheese churn handle would be a lovely addition to your collection or home.
