Dry Goods Measure

English, 17th/18th c.

Oak, iron. Deep patina on both wood and iron - it makes you want to stroke it! Scalloped iron top rim held by iron straps, iron foot rim, hanging ring. Dug out construction, not turned. The red painted ring just below the waist is old, possibly original -- some sort of filling guide perhaps? Expected age cracks, no restoration.
