Wonderful antique black powder or gunpowder keg from the late 18th, early 19th century.
These small kegs were easy to carry and were brought around during battle by errand boys and ship’s boys to refill the powder horns, so that the men had enough black powder to continue firing.
Keg is in used and in original condition, beautifully made. Has the original wooden plugs to seal it.
Keg has some old woodworm holes, has been treated extra against this as a precaution.
