Cast Iron Horse Trough
Vintage cast iron horse trough from England. Troughs of this size and design were often used in public spaces like outside of a blacksmith shop or market. Before the late 19th Century watering troughs were often carved stone or concrete. Galvanized iron became a commonly used industrial material in the late 19th Century, and remained popular until World War I. The handled cover is removable to access the filling chamber.
The trough is 12 feet long, 20" wide and 32" high to the trough edge.
