VINTAGE GALVANIZED METAL MOP BUCKET
(Scroll down below story to read complete item description/condition)

“It’s just an old mop bucket for heaven’s sake. Rosie don’t you get carried away with it now.” Angie said in a condescending tone that only older sisters can muster.

“But...it’s, it’s sooo beautiful Angie, just look at it,” Rosie replied as she lifted the bucket up and spinning it around with her finger tips. “Why just look the embossed graphics on it and the galvanized metal has the perfect aged patina.

“It’s a bucket, isn’t there something else here you’d like to buy?” Angie swept her hands widely in a futile attempt to get Rosie to look around at all the other items that surrounded them at the annual Thompson County Fall Flea Market.

It was to no avail of course because Rosie was holding the old bucket close to her chest, her arms wrapped around it like it was precious cargo. She began to rattle off all the things she could do with it. “I can put it on the porch with some flowers on it...oh, wouldn't it be fun to put some hand towels in it and put it in the bathroom?” She went on and on with the possibilities and Angie knew her whimsical younger sister would not be swayed, she was coming home with that bucket.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Here's a cool old galvanized mop bucket made by De Luxe probably in the 1950s although the patent on this style bucket dates back to the 1930s. It stands 10.5" tall, 9" wide and is 13" front-to-back, weighs almost 7lbs and is made of heavy galvanized metal. It features two wooden wringers and the top wringer swings up so you can put your mop in the water. It also has a swing-a-way handle and the trademark "De Luxe" embossed in top panel. This bucket has unique tapered sides.

CONDITION:
This bucket has a beautiful aged patina with grayed galvanized metal. It is still water tight and the wooden wringers are in good shape and both roll freely. The interior is pretty clean with a few small spots of surface rust and a few stains. The handle is firmly attached.
