These are the best, all-purpose buckets around!
These are actual buckets used to collect sugar maple sap, to make maple syrup.

Each bucket has a hole in the top rim, which is where it was hung from a nail on the tree.
The name "KING" appears just below the hole (photo 2)

About 12'' across, and 13" height

These have obviously been used for many purposes outside, because there are lots of holes in the very rusty bottoms (see photo 5) -Probably planters in the garden.

So, though they are not watertight, you can place another container down inside them to use these as a tall flower vase, or some dried hydrangeas would look lovely!

You could use them to store rolls of paper in an art studio, or even to corral toys in a child's room.
If you did that, I would suggest spraying with a couple coats of clear polyurethane to seal the rusty parts...

This listing is for the TWO sap buckets.

Please visit my shop for lots of fun vintage items, handmade jewelry and more.
Thanks for stopping by!
