A couple of years back, we had culminated our genealogy research with a first-ever family reunion on my husbands side of the family. He met cousins he never knew he had. One cousin lives very near and kindly shared a few items that were in the family for a long time. This butter churn was caked with years of dirt when we found it in his basement. I brought it home and scrubbed it up.
This is how it looks now.
The glass is embossed in a horseshoe pattern DAZEY CHURN AND MFG. COMPANY in an arch and ST. LOUIS, MO. along the base of the arch
I found the following information on-line:
The Dazey Churn & Manufacturing Company was one of the most prolific makers of butter churns and almost all of their churns are easily identified by the Dazey name embossed on the glass jars. In the early 1920's Dazey claimed their factory was able to produce 2,000 butter churns a day. In 1915 Dazey claimed it had 250,000 butter churns in use, by 1923 they boasted of two million satisfied users and by 1936 the number increased to three million. That is a lot of churns and the company made churns for another two decades after that.
