Wooden Neck Yoke with Bucket Hooks

Consists of a wooden collar that extended past shoulders with short ropes that attached to wooden bucket hooks used to hand water buckets.  Used to carry water from a well or spring. The hooks were made from wood from the crotch of (usually) apple trees which were as tough as iron.
