The Circus (display)
Circuses would sometimes use upturned gaily-painted wooden tubs as convenient stands for performing animals, as the sturdy metal-banded construction and wide base would make for good stability, and the sloping sides would make it easier for animals to feel confident jumping onto them.
In the Britains series, the tub was primarily intended as a stand for 449B Performing Tiger, or 450B Performing Elephant.
