Interested in donating a fanning mill
Posted by Charles Schwartz on November 20, 2012, 4:35 pm
I have a hand-cranked fanning mill that belonged to either my grandfather (Frank Schwartz, Sr.) or Great grandfather (Charles Schwarz) of Ottawa. It takes up more space than I can spare, and am wondering if Pioneer Power would be interested in it. It needs a little restoration, but is in pretty good shape considering it's probably at least 100 years old. It appears to always have been stored indoors. Has some original "Rosemaling"-type designs on the painted finish, and has some of the screens to fit it. I would love to see it go somewhere like Pioneer Power where it can be appreciated and placed in some kind of interpretive setting. Not sure how else or who to contact, so hope this finds the right person. Mange takk, Chuck Schwartz (Northfield, MN and Sun City, AZ)
