UNRESTORED. Sold as found. Just cleaned with soap and water.
While most of the world calls these pieces enameled, Jacob Vollrath invested his money in porcelainizing pieces (as they called it). is there a difference between it and regular enamel? truth is I don’t know. So what is a Maslin kettle? Really is’s not that different from a dutch oven, but it is believed it was used for the cooking of grains. Interior is white, while the outside is a pale blue. Bottom is bare iron.
HUGE piece capable of holding 24 quarts (6 gallons) in amazing shape. I’ve never seen one this intact. This piece has NOT been restored but it cleaned up fairly nicely with just soap and water with a bit more work it might be remarkable. Porcelain cooking surface has crazing (the mosaic like look to the bottom), but appears to be more than 99% with some pin point flaws in the porcelain. I would guess a drop of oil or two to seal them would make it perfect. Tiny bits of the rim have some very slight chips. Double gate marked. Some carbon and grease build up on and around heat ring. That should come clean. Sits flat. Lids were not made for maslin kettles
Marked: with a raised “20” on the bottom.
15” 3/8 diameter (excluding spout and ears) 8” 1/4 tall
Just washed with soap and water, no further restoration was done.
No cracks chips on the underlying iron, but there are chips in the porcelain along the rim. Very slight wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is porcelainized with what appears to be intact coating.
