A wine barrel on stand

Footnotes

  • Literature:
    See E. H. Pinto, Treen & Other Wooden Bygones (1969), Plate 50 N, and p. 65, where a very similar small keg or barrel is described as 'made of cane, using the natural horizontal membranes to act as top and bottom...an issue to Japanese soldiers in the First World War'. Probably mounted on its stand in England or Europe after 1919.
