An 18th-century George III period English antique leather fire bucket.

We love early leather items from this period!

These buckets were kept full of dry sand and used in case of fire.

Formed on a mould from wet leather, earlier examples were hand-stitched together, as in this example, rather than riveted.

The bucket is of tapered form. With a single leather carry handle, connected to the carcass by two circular brass rings.

The leather has gained lovely patination/colour to its surface.

Condition - Please refer to the images. There is minor surface wear commensurate with age. The bucket is in good order overall. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Width 26.5 cm (10 1/2") Height 30 cm (12")
