    Came across the small wooden keg at a recent swap meet.
    I was told to was early 1900's. These were used from holding drinking water, to rum and whiskey.

      Cool!! Looks like something that should be hanging under a big ole' St. Bernard's neck, when rescuing stranded skiers on snowy mountansides?!! <lol> :-) :-)

      Looks like it is a quarter keg. Reminds me of younger days going down through a trap door into a dirt cellar to siphon hard cider. I would get rid of that galvanized plug in the top and whittle a wooden plug for the vent hole.

      The galvanized threaded plug, as well as the petcock in the front is what has thrown me off at narrowing down how old it is.
      The young lady I purchased it from said she was pretty sure it was in the 1900 to 1925 range, but I'm not sure, there was something printed on it at one time, but to faded to read.
      It will be a age mystery for me, but still looks cool on my shelf! :)

      I suspect he bung and plug were added over time. You can buy original wooden bungs and plugs online to fit it back original. One comment I would make is give it a healthy coat of boiled linseed oil ( never raw linseed oil) to keep life in the wood and preserve it. Don't brush it in, just lay it on thick and give it a few days to soak in. You will see the difference immediately and do the keg a world of good.

      I appreciate the tip, I'll look into refitting it back to original, and the boiled linseed oil! I do want to preserve it!
