Here is an old copper bucket!

It measures 4.7 inch tall and 4.3'' wide at the base (12 x 11 cm). Weighs about half a pound (270 gr).

Would work great as a planter or as a fireside, garden and kitchen display.

This object is an old family piece, descending from my great grand aunt's Aegean village in Anatolia where pails like this were commonplace for everyday use. I think it was tin coated once and perhaps painted. The color has merged a lot since then.

The metal is not very thick and it shows a lot of wear with discoloration and darkening. It is heavily dented, especially on the bottom. Although it was in storage for many years, this pot obviously served as a heavy duty object once, displaying so many bumps and dings. It has considerable corrosion with various tones of grey mixed up. Some dark and greenish stained spots as well. It definitely needs a nice cleaning and perhaps polishing.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments. I can upload photos of different details if you like.

I ship worldwide and accept payments through Paypal. I use registered mail for shipping and the barcode I purchase will provide basic tracking as well as delivery confirmation. Item will be shipped within one day of cleared payment.

I will gladly combine shipping. Returns are certainly accepted, please see shop policies for details.

It usually takes between 2-4 weeks for delivery to most locations. Most post offices hold registered mail if the first delivery attempt is a failure. Mail pieces leave the country in 3-5 days so the speed mostly depends on the traffic at the receiving end. Most national shippers provide real time tracking at their websites once they accept the mail piece and I'll be glad to keep you updated about the tracking. I can research faster shipping options if you wish.

Thanks very much for reading!
