1940s Vintage Fire Bucket
After spying one of these fantastic 1940s buckets a few weeks ago I knew I had to have one! and mine is now sitting happily by the fireplace – I can’t think of a better way to store coal & kindling. These fire buckets have become quite ‘trendy’ and are being used in a variety of ways – planters, hanging baskets, waste paper bins, umbrella stands, etc. Given their age and original function they tend to be a bit battered with chips to the paintwork but that just adds to their charm – go on, get one!
