This is an old smelting pot, by an unknown maker.
Only marking is a number 6 (or is it a 9?)
6″ diameter, 3″1/2 depth
While I don’t know what kind of things this one was used for it was difficult to clean and season – and I don’t think I’d use it for food preparation unless you tested it for lead first.
Because of that it’s really just a nice display piece.
Looks great, and primitive, shows marks from a mold repair (that is the mold that was used to make it had repairs and you can see the lines of that on the finished product – considered normal just in case you were wondering).
Features a wire bail and a heat ring.
Cleaned and seasoned.
