Need Leads on Early Sheller

Antique corn sheller

I recently purchased a corn sheller supposedly dating to the 1870s. The sheller was patented by Ebenezer Morrison, Franklin, New Hampshire, in 1856 (patent no. 15,105 granted June 10, 1856). Does anyone have any information on the manufacturer or what the color scheme or graphics should be? I would like to restore this to like-new condition and am interested to learn of any markings that would have been on this sheller.
