Description

A rare pine and split ash banded tub, dating back to about 1850.
Made by a craftsman using century old methods of barrel making to achieve the shape and water tightness needed.
An extra fine Norwegian /Swedish style wooden band finished in a typical overlapping knot is found on top of the barrel and also in the middle.
It looks like the bottom one was replaced with a later iron barrel strap.
The former use of this piece was agricultural, maybe food storage or butter making etc.
In very good rustic condition, useful as a decorative storage container for golf clubs, fishing rods or umbrellas etc.
Dimensions: 25 1/2" 648mm tall
13" 330mm wide
