Revolutionary War Era Wooden Canteen. Wood Rundlet. Primitive Rum Keg Or Cask.:
Great little iron bound canteen or rundlet. Dates from Revolutionary War era. Small size. Appears to be made of oak staves now dark with age and exhibiting a few worm holes. Four forged iron bands hold the staves together. Each band lapped and riveted. Iron handle for carrying. The spout has an age crack and exhibits a very old repair. Cork or stopper is missing. Only mark is a X carved in one end by a former owner to mark his canteen. Measures about 5 inches by 2½ inches in diameter. Difficult to improve upon – wonderful age and patina. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK.
