This is european style cooking pot which is a hybrid style. It most accurately would be a kettle based on shape, but it has characteristics of a dutch oven, or bowl, so calling it a casserole might be the most accurate description. It is designed for a wood stove (with a ring up the side of the bowl to that it could sit in a stove eye) but would be great on a stove or in an oven too. Clearly a piece made for export due to the spelling of liter, it probably came from somewhere in Europe other than the UK (as the British did not adopt the metric system until 1965). The most likely places are Scandinavia, France, or Portugal. Based on similar pieces I’m leaning hard to it being Swedish.
Beautifully polished interior, well cast with a pattern that looks like intertwined J’s underneath a crown. Bowl shaped, but with very short legs that were designed to stabilize it is it could stand on a flat surface. both body and lid are also gate marked. This is a beautiful piece which will be a great display, server, and user.
Markings on the lid include a crown underneath which there almost seems to be two, J’s inverted to each other and interlocking, then “3 LS”
The body is marked: “3 4 Liter H”
9” 1/4 diameter (24 cm), about 5” without lid.
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips or wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is remarkably smooth.
