Exceptional 19th c. Sugar Maple Bucket
An exceptional 19th c. treenware sugar maple bucket in original mustard paint.
Constructed of typical white cooperage design with a nicely canted body. Vertical staving and a two board (by design) base are comprised of eastern white pine wood. Beautiful interlocking bands made of ash wood encircle the body and reinforce the staving.
An especially pleasing feature are the wooden pins which attach the handle to the body. Made of turned pine wood and profiled in a square shaped and pointed body and secured via the original wooden pine wood pins.
Displays beautifully alone or as an accent piece amonst other quality examples. For the collector seeking well above average elements in fine Colonial treenware.
Excellent as-descended condition with minor as expected wear on the lid being consistent with age and use. Retains exceptional surface elements and color with quality texture.
Northeast origin, New England or Maritimes. Ca. 1830. 16" OAH.
