ARTILLERY WATER BUCKET

$850.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 766-861

An interesting and rarely encountered artifact. This is a heavy iron water bucket for a Civil War field gun. This specimen measures approximately 9” in diameter and 9 ½” tall. A 5” wide opening is on the top. The weathered remains of the wood lid is chained to the heavy iron bail. The bail is attached by sturdy iron ring mounts on each side of the bucket. A “T” shaped attachment device is also attached to the top of the bail. There are two small holes on one side; perhaps small caliber bullet holes (not Civil War era) or perhaps the bucket was de-milled to be sold as scrap. The bottom of this bucket shows a few small rusted through areas.

Overall the surfaces are only lightly pitted and covered with fine surface rust. This artillery water bucket is heavy, and displays quite well.  [jet]
