tub

open tank (GB)

A formerly used wooden vessel or tub with two carrying handles, with which a transport was possible by two or by means of rods of four people. The name is derived from the Old German word "zwibar", meaning "two-tier vessel" as a counter word to "einbar" (bucket that could be worn by a person). The cider or grapevine used to be a widely used unit for 30 to 40 years bucket (regionally very different, usually about 150 to 200 liters). See also below wine vessels,
