Copper Milking Bucket

Code: E18157


H: 29cm (11.4")Di: 26cm (10.2")


A 19th century, French copper bucket. This piece would originally have been made as a milking bucket, as the interior was tinned, but now would be useful as either a coal bucket or a waste paper bin. It is nicely shaped and has a ridged base and a steel handle. There are brass fittings around the holes for the handle. It is made from a substantial gauge of copper and it has a castellated seam up the side. The raised lugs, on the side, also have castellated seams to attach them to the bucket. It dates from c.1880. There are splits in the copper, to either side of both of the handles, but other than this it is in good condition.
