Authentic Vintage Sap Buckets - Upcycled Beekman-style
These traditional, vintage, metal sap buckets have seen decades of use here in upstate New York. For generations, farmers have tapped their sugar maples by hanging a "spile" (spigot) & bucket from each tree to collect the sap for syrup making. These particular buckets come from a family maple farm in our area, and still have the holes used to hang them from the trees. Original old buckets like these are becoming harder to find as farmers move toward more modern methods. Now retired from active duty, these buckets are stenciled with a great leaf design and B.1802 logo. Use it as a country-chic wastebasket, or cachepot.
Each bucket is an authentic sap bucket - not a reproduction - so there will be variance in condition and finish. All have some slight rusting, which adds to their rustic charm. And while these sap buckets still hold water, we recommend inserting a glass container inside if you wish to use it as a large vase to help stall further decay.
