Metal Banded, Staved Wooden Pail


This staved, metal banded wooden pail is probably circa early 1900s. I'm uncertain of its original use but seen in the first photo, it holds flowers. (*Please note that the flowers do not come with the pail.) Some may refer to this type of piece as a firkin, and while the term is more loosely used nowadays, it originally meant a measure of eight gallons.

Measurements are 7" height, 7" across the mouth of the pail, and approximately 23" circumference around the widest portion of the pail.

Please note the rustic look of this well-worn and well-used pail. There are drips around the exterior. The interior is coated with something, perhaps glue, that the pail once held, and the ends of the nails (two on each side) that hold the metal handle in place sharply protrude in the interior of the pail. The metal handle is not evenly curved but bent. There are stamped black letters on the pail but they're obscured by the drips and are also faded with age.

Thank you for looking.
