i found this in an old barn and have been using it as my kitchen garbage can for several years now. is it a good piece? should i stop using it for my kitchen waste? i would love to know more about it.

any idea of what the value is? i haven't seen another one that's this size or kind yet. i'm just curious.

thanks.
