Unknown corn husker

Unidentified corn husker.

Enclosed is a picture of a corn husker. The frame shows some green paint and the wood has some red. The information I’ve found is that huskers were made in the late 1800s, but they didn’t go over and were replaced with husker shredders. The corn is put in the top and rollers take off the husk, which falls on the ground at the bottom. The corn goes up the elevator and out. I would like to know who made this machine or any information about it.
