Leather Fire Bucket
- Media Type:
- A leather bucket used to put out fires. This type bucket was used in the 1820's and may have been from the St.Catharines area.
The black, leather bucket is approximately 12 inches in height, 9 inches in length and 8.5 inches wide. The number "1822" is painted in white on the outside of the body of the bucket.
The bucket is slightly narrower at the bottom and widens near the top. The top edge of the bucket folds over two pieces of metal. There is a thin metal wire breaking through the leather material near the top edge on the inside.
A vertical seam, with a leather strip over it, runs down the entire body of the bucket.
A leather handle is held in place by 3 leather studs on each side. There is a metal buckle to adjust the handle. The handle is in poor condition in pieces at the bottom of the bucket, with one side still attached.
