    • Broken Handle and color not as pictured

      I purchased the blue bucket and upon arrival, the handle had broken off (which must have been pretty hard to do considering the handle is made of iron). The color was also MUCH more vibrant than the photo. It was a bright aqua blue rather than a robin's egg blue that is pictured.

    • Antiue Iron-Handle Kitchen Bucket

      This bucket arrived quickly, and I was amazed at the sturdiness of it once I got it unboxed. The gloss is nice, but not too shiny, as it will be used for photos. This is important so that it does not have a lot of glare when being photographed. The handle is also very durable, and would not be easily broken off, as it's very thick and heavy. Overall, this is a great purchase, especially for the price.

    • Great newborn photography prop!

      I really love this little bucket! It's the perfect size for newborns I photograph. I also like how the edges are a little thicker too.

    • Love it

      Bought this to use as a prop for newborn babies when I photograph them. I love it. The diameter of the opening is smaller than it looks, but it's a beautiful piece!

    • Great Photography Prop

      I bought this bucket for a photography prop for my newborns (****), and it is perfect! The handle can be tricky to pull up, if you don't pull it out all the way before you pull it up, but that's not something that matters much to me, as I'm not hoisting newborns around. Color is a perfect match, perfect size, and not heavy.

      I was pleased when I recieved this bucket. It is much bigger than I thought, and it is truly a piece of art. In that I mean hand made ( well crafted). If you have a need for something like this: buy it. You will not be dissapointed.

    • Nice bucket!

      This bucket is awesome!! It's a water bucket that has both the look and feel of history in it. This item looked so amazing when I opened it, that I had to gaze on it lovingly for a minute :) It really made my day when I opened it after coming home from a long day of work. I got the aqua-colored bucket since it looked so unique to me, and the paint over it looks very rustic, like a stylized-distress look, which I think cool and goes along with the vintage culture that's been sweeping fashion. I think I'm going to have to buy a natural colored one to give a brother to the aqua one lol =P Once again, I am very happy with my purchase, and Overstock has made my day once again!

    • Beautiful!

      When I received this piece, I was not disappointed. I opened the box, and it was wrapped very safely in bubble wrap and was secure in the box. The bucket is heavier than it looks, and has got a very rustic, old-fashion feel. It truly is beautiful and am glad about my purchase PS, I love Overstock and their shipping deals!!!!

    • Doesn't look ANYTHING like the picture!!!

      I was so excited to get this bucket in the mail to use it for my newborn photography sessions and I opened the box and it does not look ANYTHING like it did in the picture. I am very upset about it and it is going back! Ughh how frustrating!
