I love galvanized metal and here are a few unusual, and my favorite Galvanized Farmhouse items.
An old water well bucket.
Also, I invite you to visit Bella Rosa Antiques
I bought it from a friend several years ago and although admired and loved, I have never used it to decorate with.
Here is a quick staging to show it.
It is 18" long ... 12¾" wide ... 5¾ deep ... weight 4½ pounds.
Just imagine how heavy it would be full of eggs !!!!!!!
I think the patent date on it is 1901.
It is a true antique ... my friend was selling her Aunt's estate.
Her Aunt raised chickens and sold her eggs at the Farmer's market. This the tray she carried her "eggs to market" in.
I think it would pretty to use as an Easter decoration with eggs, chicks and a bunny or two.
Could be hung on the wall for a shelf.
Notice how the metal is cut and lapped over to make the handle and that unusual seam joint.
The red painted metal piece that I used in the background is tin ridge cap ... maybe galvanized. It is two-sided and open at the bottom to straddle the ridge of a barn or house roof. The tall piece would have been at the front edge. The stars, clover and rounds are cut-outs.
A piece of 2x4 is mounted in the bottom so it will sit on a table.
Green apples are so pretty displayed in the old galvanized chicken feeder.
This tall, skinny galvanized garbage can serves as a vessel to catch water via our bucket chain downspout and transfer it to the large trees via a hose attached at the bottom.
Hard to find ... old galvanized apple baskets.
Mine has a rusted bottom and as you can see, part of the handle is missing. The other one is still there. The deer have eaten most of the leaves from my vine.
Almost anywhere you look in our yard, you will see galvanized buckets, wash tubs, watering cans and other galvanized items.
The galvanized chicken feeder is now in the house to display green pears for Fall.
Thanks for stopping by ... hope you enjoyed seeing some unusual galvanized metal farmhouse items.
