Two circular millstones with a hole in the middle. A flat understone, and an upper stone with a flat and a somewhat bulging side. The top stone has a smaller hole where a recessed iron pin acts as a handle.

The hand grinder was used to grind oats and barley on the farm, bnr. 3, at Li. It was used by Jakob and Ole, who were the sons of Gunhild and Gjert Mathiassen. They were the first to sow grain on the farm in this area.

Kverna is part of the artefact collection of Skaftnes Farm.
