Final Markdown Blue Diamond Graniteware Lava Ware Berry Bucket, This is one of those eye popping, WOW pieces of graniteware if you like the bold color and lots of big white swirling! This larger berry bucket is a vivid blue and white...the swirl on the top looks more like a Columbian piece, but the color is definitely more of a Blue Diamond color! I've seen it called both Blue Diamond and Lavaware by graniteware collectors. I bought this piece from an antique dealer in Iowa, and paid quite a bit for it...but then sold all my other Blue Diamond pieces, so have decided to offer this to another collector.
This piece is not perfect, but has very little granite/enamel loss...I think the pictures will show you better than I can tell. It's one of those pieces that if you display it wisely, no one will ever know it isn't perfect! I really don't think you'll be disappointed. I am not willing to sell it for a lot less, because of what I had to pay, but here's hoping it's just what you need to add to your collection!
This bucket stands 6" to the top of just the bucket....app. 7 3/4" to the top of the applied handle on the lid, and it is 6 1/2" across the top of the bucket. In addition, it has a wonderful wooden bail handle which really adds to its American character! Even the ears that the handle is attached to are enameled. Some might call it a large lunch pail, but I'd call it a berry bucket. This is definitely an early piece, and a hard to find color...especially in this condition!
