HUGE Antique English Transferware Hand Painted Stag Deer RUM Keg Barrel Pub / Bar RARE


Brand Royal Staffordshire

Attributable to  E. Coaney & Co. Birmingham England (late 1800s-early 1900s)  this antique Barrel Keg Dispenser is absolutely stunning.  

This fantastic spirits barrel dates to the Aesthetic Movement.  It features a stag painted standing against a blue sky. The word RUM is barely visible as it has been worn away over the decades.    It makes for a beautiful large floral container,  converted into a lamp or as pub decor etc.  Comes with original brass tap and lid 

This is as large as any of the antiques spirits barrels I've had the pleasure of buying and selling.

 It would be perfect converted into a lamp or used as display
These are  hard to come by as many didn't survive over the years but I've acquired a nice collection and am offering them here.  

Measures: 13 3/8" tall x appx 12" wide x 7 1/2" deep  There is no top lid

Condition: Great for age, no chips or cracks with exception to a crack in the lid which is visible.  There is crazing and wear to the gold band and lettering.
