19th century Chinese barrel vessel. The staves of this barrel are held together at the bottom with an iron strap and by a twisted wire in the middle section. This barrel form is unusual because it has four legs. It would have been used for washing -- the staves expanding with the water swelling the wood. Folk art items of this type are often used in contemporary interiors for flower arranging or as jardiniers.
