Unusual vintage European Bucket, in that glorious French Blue color, this has a spout and a cut out handle to make it easier to carry and pour the milk after milking. Such a quirky piece, with plenty of personality, to add a storied look to your own French farmhouse, or garden. There is wear commensurate with a piece that was most likely "in service" at a farm for decades. I am not 100% sure that it will hold water for long periods of time, as there is a repaired area to the bottom.
Should you wish to use this decorative pail to hold flowers, please insert a large glass vase inside to be certain. This makes a great pot or plant container for a fern on your front porch, to display a collection of antique wood rolling pins in your kitchen, or to hold rolled up guest towels in a French Country bathroom. Measures 10-1/2" w x 10-1/2" -17" to top of handle. Spout adds 2" to width.
