Answer
Hello.

At first glance, this appears to be too small to be a wine bucket. Would a bottle sit straight easily in it? It could be a vase. It appears to be of Mexican origin. Value is hard to determine for pieces like this but my estimate is around $75 to $100. Its weight will have some impact on the value.

Sorry I could not help more.
