It is also used to remove weevils or other pests from stored grain. Threshing, the separation of grain or seeds from the husks and straw, is the step in the chaff-removal process that comes before winnowing. Winnowing the chaff is a common expression among the well read In its simplest form it involves throwing the mixture into the air so that the wind blows away the lighter chaff, while the heavier grains fall back down for recovery. Techniques included using a winnowing fan (a shaped basket shaken to raise the chaff) or using a tool (a winnowing fork or shovel) on a pile of harvested grain.

This unusually tall cobalt glass bottle is marked: Noxzema / #6. Noxell Corporation was a Maryland-based company that made the famous Noxzema skin cream. Noxzema was invented by Dr. Francis J. Townsend, a doctor who lived in Ocean City, Maryland. The formula was called Townsend R22 and referred to commonly as no-eczema. Townsend prescribed it as a remedy to early resort vacationers burned by the sun. In order to help people outside of the resort town Townsend later gave the formula to Dr. George Bunting who for many years denied the transaction (graduate of Washington College in Maryland). Bunting introduced Dr. Bunting's Sunburn Remedy as the first real alternative to the greasy, tallow-based medicating creams common during the period. For the first three years, Bunting did all the mixing, heating, and pouring of the product himself. During 1920 the first Noxzema Chemical Company factory was opened in a tiny house in Baltimore. The product achieved national popularity by the 1940s through the use of radio and print advertising. During the 1950s, Noxzema diversified into other personal care products such as shaving cream, suntan lotion and cold cream. In the late 1950s it originated the CoverGirl line of cosmetics, notable for using Noxzema's medicated ingredients. The company changed its name to Noxell Corporation in 1966. Procter & Gamble acquired the brand in 1989. In very good + condition without chips or cracks it measures 5 inches tall, 2 1/2 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches deep. A wonderful addition to any Cobalt Glass Collection. SH & Ins. will be quoted after orders placed. If you have any questions contact me and thank you for looking.

This vintage glass ribbed scrub board is marked: Atlantic National Washboard #511 / Chicago / Saginaw / Memphis, and on every other glass rib is the word National. Washing clothes, a job so slow and grueling when performed manually that laundresses were by far the most sought after domestic help. In the preelectric era, Mondays were traditionally devoted to doing the laundry. First, the clothes were rubbed against a washboard in soapy water to remove most of the dirt, next they were wrung out, perhaps by running them through a pair of hand cranked rollers; they were then boiled briefly in a vat on top of the stove; then, after removal with a stick, they were soaped, rinsed, and wrung out again; finally they were hung on a line to dry - unless it was raining! In very good + condition, without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 25 inches tall, 13 1/2 inches wide and 1 7/8 inches deep. An addition to any Wash Board or Vintage Laundry Appliance Collection. SH & Ins. will be quoted after orders placed. If you have questions feel free to contact me and thank you for looking.
