FS1206 19th Century Firkin $349.
Every country home has to have at least one gorgeous firkin. I fell in love with this one the first time I laid eyes on it. It's 10 inches high, 11 inches wide at the bottom. The color is just beautiful and is very hard to photograph, but it's, kind of a mustardy brown, darker then in the photos, not so much mustard, but browner. It's original too. The second thing that I love about it is that the top of the lid says, KEEP THIS COVERED MINCE MEAT IS BETTER IF KEPT IN A COOL PLACE AND STIRRED OFTEN AS THE LIQUOR SETTLES AT THE BOTTOM and on the bottom of the lid is, NET. WEIGHT 20 LBS. Wow, that's a lot of mincemeat! Notice the groove that has been etched into the wood when the handle would be lifted time and time again. The handle has a wonderful patina from so many years of being used. This firkin is in beautiful condition. You will love it! $349. Includes shipping.
