This one is a bit of a mystery piece – we’re not quite sure what it really is. All I can say for sure is that it came out of an old farmhouse barn in CT that was built in 1820. Guesses have included a animal feeder or watering bucket, ash catch tray for under a wood stove, even a refrigerator pan. It might be one of those or something else entirely. In any case it’s a very cool piece. The center hook mechanism is pinned and swings like a hinge upright to an almost 90 degree angle. Oval in shape with one raised side and a slot on the underside where the piece clearly locks into something else. Casting shows a pouring flaw opposite the bottom gate mark. Some minor pitting present Casting quality is good.
Marked: “21-163 on the interior bottom of the bucket part.
11” 1/2 x 10” 3/8 x 4” high
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Sits on it’s gate marks so there is wobble when tested on a sheet of glass.
