Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This antique wood primitive country bucket was made around 1860 by Samuel Sanford Graves pail factory in North Leverett, Massachusetts, and is signed by the maker on the bottom. It was used for collecting maple sap to make maple syrup in Massachusetts in the mid 19th century. We found it in a local barn. It’s 12” in diameter at the top, and 11” tall. It’s tapered, with two iron bands holding it together. It has original red paint as was traditionally used so that the the farmer could more easily locate the bucket in the New England woods. It still has the original metal tab used to suspend it from the tap in the tree. See photos for details.
