This is a nice antique cheese or butter box. It is honey caramel in color and in very good condition.It has been in our home sense I was a kid ( I am 59 now). The stories behind it were great grandmother carried and kept cheese and butter in it to carry to town. It measures 9 1/2" wide at the top and 10 1/4" at the bottom. It is 9 3/4" tall, with the handle down. I accept Paypal and money orders. Insurance is optional, however, seller is not responsible for damage or loss during shipping if buyer does not purchase insurance. One of my emails ask about the other side of my bucket. The other side of the bucket is in just as good shape as the side shown in the picture. Thank you for all of your emails.
