French Oval Wood Slat Barrel
Hello Gardenweb world,
Can anyone provide some insight as to the general use and approximate age of the antique French barrel attached? I am assuming it was used for garden/crops or field work? Ideas?
17 1/2Ã¢ÂÂ³ tall x 35Ã¢ÂÂ³ long (including handles)
Purchased from antique store that obtained a container from Versailles. Also has a imprint/stencil in the back stating
"M SILVESTRE DE SACY"
Thanks so much for any and all information!
