    Any fire bucket with "painting" in tact makes it very valuable. Looks like it has been dated for a reason, another plus for it. Try getting into contact with a fire museum close to you. You can go to the internet and find out where these museums are at. Pat H. from http://www.oldfirestuff.com .

    Try contacting Skinners or Heritage Auctions.
