This an 'All Australian Mop Bucket', manufactured from grey plastic by E D Oates Pty Ltd, Australia. The bucket is rectangular with straight sides, rounded corners, a wide flanged rim and a recessed handle incorporated into the base at one end to facilitate the pouring of used water. The carrying handle is coloured fluorescent pink and has straight sides rising to rounded corners, supporting two uprights which are separated by a cylindrical bar secured by two grey plastic rivets. The wringing action is from a foot treadle in dark charcoal-coloured plastic, flat with a raised ridged instep at one end; the action pushes a roller, secured by two guides moulded into the sides, across the top of the bucket to meet another roller fixed at the other end.
