  • A primitive antique flour firkin. Circa 1900


    Beautiful condition- Finger overlap on the lid and all the bands. Mushroom cap handle. Staves and bands are tight. Lid fits snugly as it should. Held together with fabulous copper nails and hand made staples. Historic repair to top band but it only adds to the primitive charm.

    Would make a fantastic bread bin.
