Name (also amper, chest, bucket, Einber, bucket, skid) for a mostly open top container for liquids or bulk material in cylindrical or slightly conical form, which is formerly preferably made of wood or leather, today made of metal or plastic. It is usually equipped with a movable handle for carrying. Etymological is probably the term bucket in Latin amphora due.
It is also an ancient one Volume, for wine and other liquids, already in the Bible mentioned. The sizes are given very differently. From the 19th century, the filling volume was mostly about 12 to 15 liters, which is relatively easy to carry by one person. A so-called bar bucket could be carried on a pole by two people and held about 60 liters. See also under wine vessels,
