I FOUND THIS AMAZING LARGE ALL WOOD PILLSBURY'S FLOUR BARREL IN AN ESTATE. IT IS IN WONDERFULL CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. I COULD JUST IMAGINE THE PIONEERS COMING INTO A GENERAL STORE AND HAVING FLOUR SCOOPED UP FROM THIS BARREL WHEN THEY BOUGHT THEIR STAPLES OF FOOD. IT IS STENCELED PAINTED ON THE TOP WHICH STATES " PILLSBURY'S BEST XXXX MINNEAPOLIS MINN" THE COLORS ARE VIVID, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS SOME FADING. THE SIDE OF THE BARREL READS " PILLSBURYS FLOUR" IN THE MIDDLE, THEN ON THE RIGHT OF THAT IT STATES: "CO-OP BAL CO" AND ON THE LEFT SIDE IT SAYS: "THIS BARREL PATENDED MAY 3?, 1832?" AS IT'S HARD TO READ. IT MUST BE REALLY EARLY, AS IT HAS WOOD BRANCHES TO FORM THE TOP AND BOTTOM BANDING AND IT HAS FEATHER TYPE WOOD BANDING ON THE SIDES. THERE IS NO METAL ON IT AT ALL, OTHER THAN THE NAILS. ALL OF THE BOARDS ARE TIGHTLY HELD IN PLACE WITH NO SHRINKAGE. THERE IS SOME SIGNS OF WATER THAT IS ON THE INSIDE OF THE BARREL, AND SOME WARPAGE ON THE TOP AND BARREL SLATS. THERE IS SOME BRANCH BANDING MISSING ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGE OF THE BARREL, BUT NONE OF THIS DETRACTS FROM HOW GREAT THIS LOOKS AND DISPLAYS. I ONLY MENTION ALL OF THIS FOR ACCURACYS SAKE. THIS REALLY IS AN AMAZING FIND - GREAT FOR ANY ANTIQUES COLLECTOR, PILLSBURY COLLECTOR OR JUST AS A WONDERFUL DECORATION IN A HOME OR A STORE. IT MEASURES APPROX. 28 1/8" HIGH X 22" OUTER DIAMETER IN THE MIDDLE AND THE TOP AND BOTTOM OPENINGS MEASURE APPROX. 18". DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!

I HAVE ADDITIONAL PICTURES, WHICH WOULDN'T FIT INTO THE 12 PICTURE FORMAT-PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE!!

THIS WILL SHIP IN THE LOWER 48 STATES ONLY, VIA GREYHOUND BUS, AS YOU WILL NEED TO PICK IT UP FROM THERE. THIS IS THE CHEAPEST SHIPPING OPTION. PLEASE EMAIL WITH YOUR BUS TERMINAL FOR AN EXACT QUOTE!! IF YOU WANT THIS TO SHIP VIA FEDEX GROUND, PLEASE EMAIL YOU ZIP FOR A COST QUOTE. THIS METHOD MAY COST $30.00 OR MORE TO SHIP, DEPENDING ON HOW FAR YOU ARE FROM NY!! PLEASE EMAIL FOR SHIPPING COSTS ~~PRIOR~~ TO BIDDING!!

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO ITS SIZE, IT CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS BEFORE SHIPPING!!


***SOMETIMES THE BUILT IN POSTAL CALCULATOR IS REALLY HIGH, SO IF IT SEEMS OUTRAGEOUS --PLEASE-PLEASE EMAIL ME FOR AN EXACT QUOTE-- SHIPING IN THE USA INCLUDES DELIVERY CONFIRMATION***


My goal is to provide a pleasant shopping experience for my buyers so please take the time to read through our Auction Terms and Conditions.

Payment: . Due within 7 days after auction closes. Buyer to pay s&h.

Shipping Costs & Delivery Time: I always strive to offer my buyers the lowest shipping rates available through the U.S. Post Office, adding on a nominal handling fee. Please note that the Post Office recently raised their rates so while it may appear that some fees are exorbitant, please keep in mind that I have no control over the P.O. rate structure which now includes higher costs based not only on the weight of the package, but also on the size.

Parcel Post and First Class are generally more economical than Priority Mail but does have a longer delivery time.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not ship on Saturday or Sunday.

Most of my merchandise is vintage or used and is therefore being offered for auction in "as is" condition. , PLEASE email me with any questions you may have prior to placing your bid.

Thanks for bidding and good luck. POSITIVE FEEDBACK WILL BE RECIPROCATED~~ EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE DIFFERENT RATINGS FOR THE DASHBOARD, BUT EBAY REALLY COUNTS ONLY 5 STARS IN EACH CATAGORY TO BE MEANINGFUL. IF YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH YOUR PURCHASE 5'*****'S WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED ~~~-IF THERE IS A PROBLEM PLEASE EMAIL 1ST BEFORE LEAVING ANY NEGITIVE OR NEUTRAL (WHICH EBAY CONSIDERS A NEGITIVE) FEEDBACK-SO WE CAN WORK IT OUT!!

***NEW YORK RESIDENTS ADD 8.25% SALES TAX TO THE HIGH BID***

IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT ME BEFORE, DURING OR AFTER THIS
AUCTION. My new e-mail address is: freed2@att.net
