A red vintage enamel bin with removable lid. Perfect for storage or to use as a kitchen bin. This example has a replaced wooden handle.
These enamel bins were an alternative to refrigerated food storage. They kept the food cool, fresh and off the floor. They could even be used to preserve meat, storing it under a layer of fat for long periods of time.
This piece has some wear to the enamel, as can be seen in the photographs.
