A bucket is a flat-bottomed container, with a handle and cylindrical or slightly tapering sides, used for hauling water. It’s a period charge, found in the arms of Whitwell, c.1480 [DBA2 315; Bedingfeld 58]. The default bucket is assumed to be made of wood; if another material (e.g., leather) is intended, it must be specified in the blazon. A “bucket proper” is brown, the color of wood. For related charges, see tub.
