An antique 19th century treen luggie of particularly large size. It is made from alternating staves of Sycamore and Alder, skillfully feathered between the gaps and bound and laced with meticulously precision with willow to make it watertight.

 A luggie is a circular straight sided vessel with one of the staves extending to be used as a handle so that it could be used easier as a ladle. The one in the images is a particularly large example measuring 19cm w and the handle is 27cm long, the majority are usually around 10cm w. The luggie would be filled up with ale and most probably used to refill the bickers.
