    This is for Buckethead.
    Here's another paint bucket, this time for white lead made by Beymer Bauman Co. 1870-1900 (also, coincidentally "BB"). Note their offer of $20 in Gold for each ounce of "adulteration" found in their pigment. Often the last of the pigment was mixed into paint right in the bucket, hence the runs down its side. When full this 7" bucket probably weighed ten pounds.
