Antique Country Primitive 1-piece Wooden Cask, Keg, Barrel; Old Red Paint, 1800s:
Here's an antique, wooden cask up for offers without a hidden reserve! Found in a barn and well-preserved, this small barrel is all original and has old red paint. It has a carved wooden stopper and an old brass spigot on one end. The body of this piece isn't staved like most barrels, it was actually carved and hewn from a log, making it a rare item. It dates to the mid 19th Century and amazingly hasn't split or have any cracks. It's a solid, old keg that's free of woodworms, termites, and dry rot. As for dimensions, it stands 13 1/2 inches high (not including spigot & stopper) and is about 9 1/2 inches at its widest point in the center and has 8 1/4 inch diameters at each end. This is a fabulous, early piece for decorating your home, wine bar, restaurant, etc. Check out the 12 photos we have posted with this listing! Highest buyer gets it! Good luck!
