Shaker Berry Bucket in Black

Offered is a small berry pail/bucket. It is Shaker and still has the "diamond" bands on the sides where the bail is attached. There are two metal bands that support the staved wooden pieces. The bands are tight and not loose. The bail is wire with a wooden handle. It has a great coat of older black paint with other colors underneath. It is in good condition. At some point in time, someone cut out a small piece of wood off of one of the staved pieces at the top. It measures about 1"x.25". Not sure why they did this, but it was definitely hand cut out and is not a break. It's cut out too perfectly. The total piece measures approximately 4.25" tall with a base diameter of 4" and a top diameter of 5.5". Additional pics upon request.
