Firkin is the word commonly used and applied to antique wooden buckets with wood handles and lid. They were formerly used to store sugar and other items. A firkin is actually an old English unit of volume. The name is derived from the Dutch word vierdekijn, which means fourth, such as a quarter of a full-size barrel.
