Used by small scale farmers in the United States from the 1890's these corn (maize) sowers were known as 'bill picks' because the jaws opened like a bird's bill. They allowed two acres to be planted in a day compared to just one for planting by hand and hoe. This fine example has its original paint and stencilled lettering "The American Standard" and "Pat'd Oct 13, 1891" & "Pat'd July 23, 1898". The name of the manufacturer and who it was made for are stencilled on the back. A lamp holder has been wired inside the seed canister to provide an atmospheric downlight that illuminates the lettering. This is a unique statement piece wall light that can either be plugged into a mains socket or wired into the wall. PAT tested. Find another!
