Was in a local antique shop lately, spotted this seemingly plain old barrel. I saw the top down in the bottom of it and pulled it out to see if it had local markings. It did! Pretty cool Memphis artifact and probably made by the Chickasaw Cooperage Co. , (barrel manufacturer). https://www.antique-bottles.net/sho...ll-Chickasaw-Cooperage-Co&highlight=Chickasaw , IMG_6304.jpg

That's pretty cool! Not sure if it is still a thing but for a while Speas stuff was pretty hot.

In a mall in Jackson, for $245, a Speas collector could store a lot of padded bottles in it!
