Vintage enamelled milk bucket, although it lacks its lid, probably produced for the French and European markets, dating from the late 1920s - 30s. This charming milk bucket is enamelled with white with a pale blue shade at the base and edge. A decorative band of hand-painted roses in graduated pink shades and dragging greens are lined with thick horizontal and vertical lines in raised black enamel, resembling a fence on which the roses would climb. The body has a cast construction with a large raised ridge above the base, which provides an additional texture. The upper edge and the fixed handle loops are glazed in red.
There is a large missing enamel spot on one of the handle loops as well as missing enamel and rust along the rims. The interior has a minimum rust through remains waterproof.
Filled with flowers or a collection of wooden spoons / utensils, this sweet little bucket is sure to add a little French flair any o. 5 in diameter at the base.
