Vintage vaseline glass button with the design of a girl churning butter. Fluoresces green with black light.
Churning is the process of shaking up cream or whole milk to make butter, usually using a butter churn. In Europe from the Middle Ages until the Industrial Revolution, a churn was usually as simple as a barrel with a plunger in it, moved by hand.
