UNRESTORED. Sold as found. Just rinsed with 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.
This piece has NOT been restored but I think it will clean up nicely if you want to put the effort in. Porcelain cooking surface has crazing (the mosaic like look to the bottom), but appears to be intact with some black spots that seem to be on the surface and not in the porcelain. I would guess they could be scrubbed off. Tiny bits of the rim have some very slight chips. Some carbon and grease build up on and around heat ring. That should come clean. Sits flat.
Marked: with a raised “5” on the bottom.
10” diameter 4” 3/4 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.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
