tub

open tank (GB)

A previously used wooden vessel or vat with two handles, with which a transport by two or by means of four people was possible. The name is derived from the old German word "zwibar", which means "two-tier vessel" as a counterword to "einbar" (bucket that could be carried by one person). The must or wine tub used to be a widely used unit of measurement for 30 to 40 bucket (Regionally very different, usually about 150 to 200 liters). See also under wine vessels,
