    Very special and very old oak, coopered bucket

     
    I think this bucket is early 18th century, however it is a country piece and could be considerably older. If you have any further knowledge, please let me know!
     
    It is very lovely with a gorgeous patina. Unusually, it is lidded and the lid is hinged. I believe it was origianlly used for dairy as there is something similar to this in Cotehele House kitchen.
     
    One of the old hinges is broken, but the lid is still useable. One of the bands of coopering has come off, a considerable time ago, but the bucket is still very sound.
     
    The handles are formed from branches and are very sturdy.
     
    There are some old worm holes (not active) and a few dinks and scratches - but to me this just adds to the overall look of the item.
     
    It could be used in a modern home as a kindling or log bucket or even a side table.
     
    It is 40 cm high and 70 cm across at its widest point.

We believe passionately that, if treated with respect, all our antiques can be used and appreciated on a daily basis. This is because English antiques have been beautifully made out of superior quality materieals by master craftsmen. Ultimately, William Morris was right, "have nothing in your home that you do not know to be usefful, or believe to be beautiful." This si a sentiment which can apply to any home, however modest. It is our pleasure to provide you with something unique, beautiful and practical.
