19th C Pumpkin Firkin

19th C Pumpkin Firkin

  • Just found this in New Hampshire last week!  

    Nice size firkin: 9" tall, 9" across the top,

    Original pumpkin milk paint.  

    Bentwood handle with button knobs.

    Finger lap seams on the wooden bands.

    Excellent antique condition with paint wear, particularly on the top of the lid.  Some light areas a some of the seams and lid edge - where something leaked out at one time, (probably).

    No cracks or breaks

    Dating from the mid 1800s.
