Each of our grain scoops is hand carved to create a specific replica of the ancient wooden grain scoops. These scoops can be used as counter or shelf decor in the kitchen, as a kitchen ladle holder while cooking, or, pair it with a votive candle as a unique conversation piece on a countertop. Great use in a farmhouse kitchen or as a unique addition to traditional style. Also a useful tool to scoop your pets dry food. We LOVE this white wash finish.
