This vintage bucket was made in Northern China using traditional coopering techniques with two iron hoops binding the wooden staves and dates from the 1920s. Originally made to carry water, the bucket is made in the form of a stylised swan with the high back as the wings, and the carrying handle and neck made in the shape of the swan's head and neck. It has recently been lightly restored in an artisan workshop in rural Beijing, but we cannot guarantee that it is still water tight. A beautiful decorative item with a textured dark blue, perfect for storing magazines, newspapers, kindling wood or as planter.
Dimensions: body of the bucket 42cm diameter X 18cm high and 58.5cm high including handle
Materials: pine with iron hoops
