Matched Pair, Fire Buckets, Keene, New Hampshire, A. Wright, No1 & No2, C. 1820 Adolphus Wright (1785 – 1864) was wig maker and Deacon of the Keene



Congregational Society; he was known to of had the best garden in town. Painted black with brick-red trim and handles, original decoration; other Keene buckets displaying identical decoration are known to exist. Paint is oxidized, varnish has yellowed; it appears that one bucket survived prolonged heat. These buckets retain their original handles; typically, the leather is compromised at “D” rings; this pair is wrapped in electrical tape at “D” ring. We have not examined the leather hidden by tape. (Height: 14")

Franklin Fire Society-Charlestown-Protection in Danger
Probably owned by Albert Tufts, Charlestown, Massachusetts
Fire Bucket
Washington Cenotaph
Charlestown, Massachusetts
Circa 1800



Fire buckets such as the depicted having identified historic motifs are scarcely encountered. This example, a leather bucket decorated and identified with "Franklin Fire Society-Charlestown-Protection in Danger", with owners name below...( rt) Tufts; only the last two letters of the first name are visible due to surface losses. Charlestown is painted along the vertical seam on the back. The central device is a large cenotaph or memorial urn with initial "W". This urn motif was used on a variety of medals, ceramics, prints and textiles circa 1800 in the months following Washington's death. The paint is 90% intact, all decoration and lettering is original; minor touch-up to small area on the reverse. The handle is period but may be a replacement; detached at one "D" ring with the other ring being a replacement...easily repaired by or leather restorer or yours. Our supposition is that the bucket was owned by Albert Tufts who was born 17 August, 1804; son of Hutchinson Jr. and Mary Locke Tufts.
