A real mystery piece, and a very uncommon one as few foundries made dutch ovens in this size. This is a gate marked dutch oven body made after 1865 but before 1900. Gate is wide and crude which suggests an earlier date but the bail is machined wire, which was not available until after 1962. While the bail could be a replacement, I don’t feel comfortable dating he piece as earlier. Pot interior surface is pitted but not enough to prevent use. Markings are all on bottom and are raised and crude.
Marked: “8 IN 1” on the bottom surrounding the bottom gate
8” diameter, ~3 high
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Wobbles on it’s gate. Cooking surface is pitted but not enough to prevent use. Will only get better.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
