EARLY AAFA ANTIQUE FOLK ART WOOD FIRKIN ORIGINAL SAGE GREEN PAINT PANTRY BOX. Up for sale is this wonderful old firkin!! Some people call them sap buckets, pantry boxes, flour buckets or grain measures!! This one has a nice old sage / light olive green color to it!! It has what appears to be its original paint. This firkin measure is about 12. In diameter at the bottom and 10.5″ in diameter at the lid and 12″ high. This firkin is a nice size and is big in character!! The firkin has three bands around the bottom and two bands around the top of the firkin. The bands around the bottom are overlap bands and we don’t see any nails. There is one band around the lid also and it has small round nails that are dark. We don’t know if those are copper nails or metal, we’re not sure. Inside, it’s clean for its age and has some staining of green and purple as you can see. We’re not sure what that was about. The inside has a slight hickory or wood smell to it. On the outside is has some light fading, dry paint, edgewear, streaks, paint loss, paint chips, drips, nicks, staining. The paint on the wood knobs that hold the handle has alligatoring on it. The wood handle works nicely and the paint is mostly worn off. The lid rocks a little when on the firkin as the lid is just slightly warped but still fits nicely.
