Torpedo minnow bucket

Galvanized sheet-iron minnow bucket made in the form of a torpedo. It has a cylindrical body with a rounded conical top, a wire bail-type handle and four fins serving as a base. A hinged, spring-loaded door gives access to the interior and perforations on the back allow water to circulate. An oval engraving below the door reads “TORPEDO / MINNOW BUCKET / PAT. PENDING / MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. / WARREN MFG. CO.” Circa 1935.
