Default What is it?

Hi HBT sleuths,

I picked these up as part of a I'm-getting-out-of-brewing-buy-it-all deal. I have NO clue these are. Well, not totally true, I have some clue, they have a party tap and a hand pump, but I can't figure out what vessel they would be for. Any ideas?

One other clue, there no twist lock or connection at the top of the dip tube. Here's a better pic:

Is that an old beer ball tap?

Hmm, a google search of Beer Ball Tap may confirm that guess. I've never seen one before - thanks for the lead!
