What better way to serve up some ice cold lemonade than in a vintage cream separator. An old galvanized cooler serves as a spill bucket and a twenty gallon crock works as a side table.
Best to label the contents of the bowl. To allow the beverage to flow out of the spouts, just turn the lever in the bowl.
Use a set of vintage glasses. Old hankies and linens as serviettes add vintage charm.
I love the stainless steel on this baby.
Pour and enjoy.

My mom is cleaning out a corner in her basement and I ended up carting this very heavy cream separator home. I remember dad milking the cow and mom using the separator. There's nothing better than farm fresh milk and cream and happy memories. Since I don't have a milk cow, I thought I'd turn this into a beverage center. Just add beverage and drink up.

texasjunkermom writes: Wonderful use of a real antique and conversation piece! Looks like your might be a table top-sized one. I have one on my front porch that is up on a HEAVY cast iron stand. No one will steal that guy! Plus the bowl of yours is stainless. I've turned the crank on one of those and heard the click it makes. Glad yours still works. West Texas native, T.
