The shape of this painted pine canteen is similar to a barrel flattened on its sides.

It's made of staves of wood with four bands that are carved to resemble a joined belt. The belt joins are shown alternately to each side. The top has two metal wire loops for a hanging strap. These are made from a single piece that has both ends pushed through the top and out of the sides of the barrel and bent back on themselves to hold. The raised aperture would originally have had a bung which is now lost.

The barrel is stamped with the owners initials BJA in at least three places and it has been painted dark blue. By repute this was made and used by a sailor and although the colour is certainly navy blue we do not have any prove of its origin. Early to mid 19th Century
