    A Firkin, in the U.S., the meaning of the word evolved during colonial times to mean a small wooden bucket with a lid and handle that was used to store butter (covered with brine to keep it from going rancid), lard, soap, sugar (which would have been a sugarloaf), and even nails. The size varied, but many are about 10" tall and 10" in diameter. This one measures 10” tall and 20 & 1/2” wide. There is a scene etched on the surface of the bucket that carries all the way around. The country scene on the front of the bucket has been painted but the back remains unpainted. It would look great on your fireplace mantle. Stamped on bottom Basketville, Putney, Vermont.
