A round, Banded Piggin, c. 1840. Fingered Stave construction (2) with square nails (you could convince me it is Shaker, given how nicely it is made: but that is only a hunch). The “hook” for hanging is carved from one of the piggin’s slats. Original red-painted surface. Long, straight grained wood (ash?). 7 ½” in diameter, 4 ¾” high to the top of the bucket, 6 ¼” to the top of the hanging hook. Excellent original condition: no splits, cracks, etc. Some minor edge nibbling in 2 places in the front and in the back, under the hook. Tight and solid. A wonderful example of a good country form.
