Antique Stone

18th Century Granite Roller/Millstone

This stone was meant to have a wooden beam in the hole which was pinned to a central point at the other end of the beam. A horse would walk around in circles causing the outer edge of the stone to crush whatever was being processed, such as birch bark, apples or other commodity. The stone was not meant to run flat as most (gristmill) stones would, as such, is more rare than grist millstones. Measure a hefty 12” thick x 52” diameter. This was recently used as a seating location in a garden setting. Great eye appeal. Light lichen.
