What a fabulous early firkin this is, found right here in the heart of farm country. The firkin measures just about 7.75" tall. The diameter is 7.75" at the top and just under 8.5" at the bottom. The staves and bands are tight and secure. My pet peeve are loose staves!! This one is tight. The interior is clean. It has some nice, honest wear on the exterior from age and use. There is a remnant of a paper label on the front, I cannot make out the lettering but there is a detailed picture of fruit on it. The original lid is also nice and tight, very secure, but goes on and off easily. This old firkin is absolutely awesome overall, and would look amazing in your country cupboard, shelf or counter. A real beauty!
