Later it was used on merchant and naval ships to supply water/rum to the crew. (view the pics). It is made out of oak staves with 6 galvanized bands. Two of which provide feet to keep upright. It has a brass filler cap on chain and a brass drain cock on the end. The bands are tight and have been moved to tighten weathered staves.
