Early 20th Century Chinese Well Bucket

About

Beautifully aged with a warm patina, this Qing-dynasty bucket draws attention to the ingenuity of its manufacture, consisting of staves of cypress bound with iron rings. Conjuring up images of the water-bearing figures illustrated in painted calligraphy scrolls, the bucket adds lovely contrast to a formal garden or contemporary bath.
