Hand-painted metal pail, "Farm, Late Summer"
Nothing can compare to a late summer evening on the farm at sunset. From the old truck outside the barn, to the child running out to pet the new foal, life abounds in the imagery on this No. 5 pail. It is painted in latex house paints, then I applied a couple of layers of spar urethane for protection. There are a couple of spots in the bottom of this pail, as it was actually destined for the trash when I rescued it to be painted for a new life.
I have it pictured here with fruit, and you can wash the inside with warm soapy water, being careful to not scratch the outside. You can also use the pail for potted plants, a beverage chiller or flowers, but if you are going to use it with ice or water, I suggest one of those small clear waste basket liners just for safe measure, as I do not guarantee the water tightness of this item. It is in good condition but it may not be quite as watertight as when it was new.
While this item does have its functionality, I highly recommend gentle care with the painting on it. It does have two coats of urethane, but it is still susceptible to scratches if handled in a rough manner. The paint is exterior based, but I would not leave it out in the sun on a permanent basis as there could potentially be a color shift over time.
**This item is a collector's item only and is not intended play by small children.**
This item will ship in 3-5 business days or less. Fruit not included.
