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 just rinsed. Porcelain cooking surface has crazing (the mosaic like look to the bottom), but is fully intact with some black spots that seem to be on the surface and not in the porcelain and should wash away. Will be a very easy clean up. Slight wobble..
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 flea bite chips in the porcelain along the rim. Slight wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is porcelainized with intact coating.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
