19th Century English Hand Painted Iron Coal Bucket with Plymouth Crest and Motto
Place this large, colorful antique stand at your front door or in your mudroom to collect umbrellas, canes or other accessories. Created in England, circa 1890, the iron bucket with top and side handles, is decorated with lions figures holding the coat of arms of Plymouth, and the city’s motto: “Turris Fortissima Est Nomen Jehova”, on green and black background. The bucket is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns a rich and bright painted finish with gilt accents. The city’s motto, “Turris Fortissima Est Nomen Jehova” translates as the ‘strongest tower is the name of Jehovah’, and this refers to the city’s successful resistance to the Royalist siege during that conflict.
