Leather and canvas-covered cork cordite/gunpowder bucket
Unusual painted leather and canvas-covered cork bucket, originally used to carry cordite / gunpowder. With leather handle and royal crest print decoration (probably added later).
This may have been reduced in height after decommissioning.
A useful, historic and very decorative piece. Could now be used as an umbrella stand, a waste paper bin, dried flower display, tool /utensil store…
Approximate dimensions: height 31 cm, diameter 15.5 cm.
