About a straight and right a piece of early 19th century (perhaps late 18th century) woodenware as you will find: a small piggin in original brown painted surface and original banding. Piggins were small barrel-like containers where one stave was left long to serve as a handle. They had a variety of uses, from scooping grain to slopping the pigs and have become very hard to find in their original condition. This example measures about 5 ¼" in diameter and 6 ¾" to the top of the handle (4 ¼" to the top of the container). The steel bands holding the piece together, and the rivets, appear to be hand-forged. The piggin is in very fine condition: tight with only minor bumps and paint rubbing. A great country accessory.
