"19th Century Corn Sheller

RARE FIND!"





This is a real "TREASURE", a piece of Amercia's history! GREAT condition. Very HEAVY wood & CAST IRON. Great conversation starter! A MUST HAVE for the serious collector.


19th Century Corn Sheller Made of heavy wood and cast iron. late 1800's. Used to knock corn of the cobb, so it can be ground for cornmeal, also for feeding purposes. NOTE: possibly made by : Schaeffer, Merkel & Co. Fleetwood, Pa

"True Americana History at it's best!"

*Whether the corn was shucked in the barn or in the field, it was shelled by hand, in many areas until the 1950's. Shelling by hand meant feeding it into a hand-turned mill with spikes inside to rub the corn off the cob. In the best designed models the corn fell below while the cob was ejected from the side.


*A corn sheller is used to remove the corn kernels from the cob. When the dry ears of corn grate against the teeth of the round shelling gear, the kernels separate from the cob. Shelled corn is fed to the chickens, ducks, geese, and other animals, and is used as seed for the new corn crop.
