DescriptionThis is an example of a bucket used to collect sap from a maple tree, which is then boiled down to produce a variety of maple products, most notably maple syrup. The commonly used ratio of sap need to syrup made is 40:1. So, many full buckets would have been required to produce a usable amount of syrup.
