A wonderful old and timeworn malt shovel which looks wonderful displayed in a country kitchen either on a wall or leaning. It has iron detail on it too. Fanatstic piece of history. "During the germination period, traditionally the malt had to be turned by hand every 8 hours, a skilled task using the shovel to turn the 'couch' to prevent the roots from matting. Turning the germinating grain maintained optimal conditions, ensuring even temperature and moisture."
