A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A disassembled oak vinegar keg consisting of nine staves, two heads, and two iron hoops. 'J. BAGNALL & SonS' is marked on the inside of one hoop. The stave with bung is narrower. It was found in an Inuit cache at Cape Maria Louisa by the Schwatka Search Expedition 1878-1879. Heinrich Klutschak reported that an Inuk had told the expedition that he had cached these items under a rock for lack of transport but was unable to find them when he came back.
