Breadboard Old Child's Wooden Bucket and Sugar Cone Gathering
This breadboard gathering includes a darling old Child's bucket, and authentic sugar cone with hand ~ fashioned sugar nippers that will look fabulous in your Pantry or Buttery. ~**Please note: The Peach Pitter is NOT included with this gathering~. The little Child's bucket is my favorite and I filled this with some aged cheesecloth and wee pumpkins that will carry through to the Autumn season with ease.
The breadboard has beautiful color that closely resembles a warm and pleasing nutmeg hue with dark areas mixed in on the front that add primitive character and charm. The form is fabulous and the fat handle design is unique. The back of the board does show some wear on the right corner and the top left area as the color is lighter than the rest of the board as shown in images 7 & 8. This breadboard does not have any chips, warping or cracks and is in good condition.
The darling wooden Child's bucket with a bail handle is just as cute as can be and the surface wear is wonderful. It appears there are two black accent lines surrounding the outside circumference of the bucket but only whispers of paint remain. The color is a soft nutmeg brown with a smidgen of dark areas sprinkled randomly throughout.
There are two hairline age cracks that run vertically from the metal brad that attaches the handle on both sides as referenced in images 15 & 16. This piece is still very sturdy and does not have any play associated with these cracks. I filled this bucket with soft aged cheesecloth, wee pumpkins and a piece of chocolate broom corn. Just adorable!
An authentic sugar cone was added for the rich color and texture it lends to this offering. Harry made the diminutive Sugar Nippers out of one piece of wire and they are so cute! He is amazing when it comes to bending wire and can make just about anything! I gave the nippers a wash of bittersweet paint so they would stand out better against the dark cone. Aged cheesecloth was wrapped around the bottom and a piece of aged calico was added because of the Autumn colors it lends. I made a little mat so the sugar cone could be placed on top out of early wool.
The breadboard can also be hung if you choose to or can be stacked with your existing collection and the small bucket and sugar cone would also be a special addition to an open wall cupboard. This One~ Of ~ A ~ Kind Gathering will certainly compliment your homestead with delight while offering plenty of primitive country flavor that makes us all so happy! Enjoy!
