    Description

    Beautifully Illustrated H. J. Heinz Mince Meat Wooden Bucket With paper label, approximately 10" tall and in immaculate condition. The lithographed label shows minor tears along the edges but is complete with its bold colorful graphic. The back of the bucket shows the Heinz label, "Directions for Keeping Mince Meat," dated 1906. The first we've seen with this type of labeling. Very complete and in near mint condition. As with most early storage buckets or, as they are called, firkens, this one is made with copper brads and nails. It's unusual to find one so complete!
