Small Antique Primitive Wooden Measure; As Found, Untouched, Patina; Little Old Staved Rustic Bucket

Sorry, this item has sold.

If you like primitive antiques, you'll absolutely love this! We just found this piece in an old barn and its completely untouched and right out of the wild! It looks like a staved wooden bucket, but because of its very small size and the residue left inside, we believe it to be a grain measure. It has the most wonderful, original, old, dry patina. We have not altered this surface with any substance, and we have not cleaned it up. We guarantee it to be old, original and unmolested. Oozing charm and character, this early piece has handmade staves, a single iron band, a carved wooden bottom, and remnants of old repairs! As mentioned, the interior has what looks like grain residue; we think this piece may have been used to feed chickens. It is still solid, sound, and sturdy, with the staves very snug and secure. No dry rot or signs of active deterioration. It was a struggle to list this piece, would love to have kept it!
