This is a cute Vintage Wooden Basketville Ice Bucket, made in the style of an antique "firkin". A firkin was generally handmade, by a cooper or barrel-maker, and used to store flour, sugar and other items that didn't need to be kept cold, but protected from insects, etc. It's a great Vintage bucket for any Lodge, or
Cabin or Cottage-style home. Or, just because you like it!

It's in Very Good, Sturdy,Vintage condition. It's made of wood ,with 2 metal bands wrapped around it ,with a wooden lid. It also has a white plastic bowl on the inside that does come out. There is a plastic piece that connects to the inside of the lid, to keep things colder, but it needs to be re-fastened (the original staple holes won't hold it in place, so I leave that to the buyer if you wish to glue it on. It is very clean inside and out although there is a little spotty rust on the metal. Leave that and Polyurythane over it for a real Vintage look, or if you don't like it, a little fine steel wool and then Poly over it, to prevent it from re-occuring.

Measurements : 25" in diameter, 7.5" wide, 8" tall.

This was a wedding present to me many years ago, in 1972, so I can vouch for it as being authentic Vintage. (It's a relic of a first marriage, so time for it to go!) On the bottom is printed in a circle:

PUTNEY, VERMONT
BASKETVILLE
