Grain cradle or grain scythe
My picker friend described this to me over the phone last night, and I drove to Salisbury, Mass. this morning to see it in person. I looked these up last night and thought they were pretty cool. They were used to reap grain and after the blade cuts the grain, the wooden teeth would cradle it in rows. Very primitive piece! Now I need to find a place for it inside the store. It's going to take some fancy footwork to find a spot for this beauty.
