Canal Boat Buckets

The last in this series of three canal boat items is a close up of two of the highly decorated and hand painted buckets which I think are really put there for decorative purposes only.

Again, it was the bright colours and variations of shapes in the artwork that caught my eye.

Nice series Brian. I love this stuff
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I find some of these things on boats very photogenic.
This is real traditional art Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, no two buckets,or whatever, seem to be alike.

Wonderful art thanks for showing it to us
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage, presumably this is not something seen very much in Australia.

These definitely catch my eye as well, Brian, so thanks for "giving" them to us.
Brian Walbey: It's good to know you have enjoyed this short series Ginnie, hopefully I will get some more shots like these some time soon.
Nice picture - as you say, these days they are purely decorative but are always displayed by boats that are of a design which reflects the old working boats.
When whole families lived on those old working boats, they decorated practicaly everything, both inside and outside - so this is real traditional canal art and goes back 200 years.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, this is one of my favourite pictures and we have a copy framed and hanging up on our landing.
