Revolutionary War Keg

Year: 18th century - early 19th century

Weight:3 lbs

Excellant size and condition 18th century keg possibly used for rum or water. I don`t know if a cast like this was used for gun powder or not.Looks like Oak or Chestnut.No condition issues just minor shrinkage from age.It has the best warm patina probably original. not round almost egg shaped with flat bottom so it sits without rolling around. The type used during the America Revolution.9 inches long.
