Offering a coal bucket with fascinating history. As you can see, this bucket looks like it's been through a lot. It was in the front room of a London home that was heavily bombed in the Blitz of World War II. The owners ended up boarding over that room and leaving everything that wasn't necessary in it. They suffered bomb damage 2 more times.

After the war, the front part of the house was rebuilt. This bucket was in several pieces. Rather than throw away possibly useful scraps, it was put in the garage.

In the 1950's, the father decided to salvage this coal buckets history. He pieced it back together by hand and left the marks to show the damage done in the Blitz. It has been sitting in the kitchen holding coal for the last several decades. Brought over from London in 2000, when much of the family emigrated.

Rich patina, never been polished. Handle hinges work well and move with ease. Sturdy and strong. Rather dirty from life next to a stove.

Measures approximately 17 inches long, including the small end handle (used for pouring). With the handle up it measures 19 inches high. With the handle down, 12 1/4 inches.

Guaranteed antique & authentic.
