Wonderful in any collection - this cute little bucket would be perfect for a child to go berry picking ! Not counting its swing handle or "ears" it is just over 3 inches tall, and is 4 inches wide.
The vintage blue gray porcelain enamel can also be called agate ware. This bucket has lots of attractive swirls and splotches of dark and light color in the finish, adding character.
CONDITION is extremely nice. The enamel is bright and shiny with an attractive color pattern. The "ears" for the heavy wire bail handle are firmly attached. The side seam is flat and tight. The top and bottom edges both are rolled rims. PLEASE SEE OUR LAST PICTURES - there are tiny flakes in the enamel surface almost all on the bottom rim, with a few inside where the side meets the bottom. On the inside bottom there is just a tiny bit of surface rust in the bare spaces. There is one small spot on the top rim that must be a manufacturing flaw where the porcelain has tiny fissures - it will catch a fingernail.
IMPORTANT -- in real life these flakes are hard to see - please remember that our huge computer enlargements are far larger than life !
What a terrific item for any vintage kitchenware collection !
