What The Firkin?

Yes, I know, that post title was all too easy.

Antique painted firkins, or sugar buckets, look fantastic when displayed in a stack, as ebay seller Black Tavern Primitives demonstrates:



Firkins with their original paint are few and far between, and even rarer to find at a modest price point. But this gorgeous blue firkin from Market Square Antiques does very nicely:



And this to-die-for firkin from Doll's Plus is painted just the shade of colonial gray to blend with any primitive decor:



Happy stacking!

Every day you learn something new.....and today I've learnt what a firkin is....love the grey one.

I'd give house room to all the objects on your blog - including the raccoon - he is delightful!
