19-20C Antique English Garden Flowers RUM Liquor Keg Spirits Barrel IDEAL FOR LAMP
Brand Royal Staffordshire
This is one of several antique spirits barrels that has just arrived from England. It is pretty in pink with white banding lined with gold, and an oval floral cartouche on the front which reads Rum in Italic gold print. It is really lovely.
This fantastic spirits barrel dates to the late 19th or early 20th Century.
Displays beautifully as you can see here in my dining room!😊
It would be perfect converted into a lamp, as a container for silk flowers (or fresh if you used a cylindrical glass vase beneath) or simply on its own atop a bookcase, in a home bar or in an office.
These are relatively hard to come by as many didn't survive over the years, and I have not seen a pink one before!
Measures: approximately 12 3/8" tall x appx 11 1/3” wide x 7" deep.
Condition: Good for age, there is wear and lots of loss / fading to the gold lettering and trim but no chips or cracks.
