This vintage water bucket was made in Northern China using traditional coopering techniques and with two iron hoops binding the wooden staves and an additional iron strip to strengthen the handle. It dates from the 1920s and is typical of Northern Chinese style for such vessels. 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 green, perfect for storing magazines, newspapers, kindling wood or as planter.
Dimensions: 39(w) X 22(d) X 48(h) cm high, including handle
Materials: pine with iron hoops
