I have no idea what this would have been used for or if it is even an officially Olympics-issued enamelware pot/bucket. The crude, almost primitive, graphics make it look almost handmade except it has numbers on the bottom. Exterior is Soviet red with white graphics of various Olympics sporting events on one side and the 1980 Moscow Olympics logo on the other side. The interior is white enamel. It's 9-1/4" high including the lid handle and 5-7/8" in diameter. Some wear marks and a little rust but in good condition. Would make a great conversation piece or primitive accent piece.

What's noteworthy about the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow is that the United States boycotted the games in response to Soviet troops' invasion of Afghanistan. Altogether, sixty five countries did not participate in these Games, most because of the boycott but some because of financial/economic problems. Only sixteen countries participated but didn't carry their national flags in the traditional parade.
