Three leather fire buckets at Cawdor Castle

Leather fire buckets, Cawdor Castle

Three leather firebuckets at the top of the main stairs in Cawdor Castle, dating to the eighteenth century, later emblazoned with the lst Earl Cawdor’s coronet and monogram. Construction is riveted throughout and virtually identical to those at Cotehele House in Cornwall, HMS Victory and any number of other sites (including this).  The top band and handle loops are metal, these buckets have a particularly fine paint job.

 

Here’s some more photos of the same buckets.
