We found this buried in our yard. Anyone know how old it is and what it was used for? Also what is the best way to clean it? Thanks!
My first inclination is to say vinegar but it could be another household product.
You will see a log of similar shapes in the Owens-Illinois catalog from teh 1930s.
You asked about cleaning. Room temperature soap and water. Bottle brushes do the trick to clean the insides but sometimes you can work a bit of sponge or scrubby pad inside to swirl around....
