French tole wine maker’s scoop bucket, c. 1900. Constructed by hand from sheet metal with hand-forged bands, and handles that are all secured with rivets. Wood was used to line the interior base. The handle or grip underneath the bucket, when used in conjunction with the carrying handle at the top, allows for the bucket to function as a scoop. The rich patina turns this bucket into a visually pleasing object that lends itself perfectly to industrial design interiors.
Condition: Very good, antique condition with normal weathering. Not watertight due to minor seperation around the base seam. Structurally good condition otherwise.
Size:9 ¾” height (12” height with the handle). Diameter at the top is 12”.
Diameter at the base is 7 ¼’.
