Wonderful antique maple syrup metal sap bucket measuring 8-1/2" tall and 7-1/2" wide. Pierced for hanging, these old buckets were designed to harvest tree sap and usually painted the specific color or banding based on individual company or family business. This bucket bears a dry, soft orange original paint with lots of scuffing, scratches and usage marks with a small amount of rust on the interior top edge as shown - does not bite through. Holds water just fine and looks perfect filled with Bittersweet for a holiday, fall or harvest display. I've been using it for years to hold a hand made vintage stuffed canvas pumpkin stack - looks adorable with vintage Halloween. Fun addition to any Halloween collection or display! As shown with the pumpkin stack not included.
