I got this from the Oakland Harbormaster who is a friend of mine. He told me that it is an emergency water supply from a very old yacht. I've never seen a keg quite like it before. It's kind of cool looking though. It's made out of oak, with a maple handle and hand-wrought rings and feet which look like they've been treated w/ zinc or something.
