This is a Genuine Circa pre 1875 work of Antique Americana Folk Art!These Large vessels were crafted for use on an open fire as well as coal & wood burning stoves. The generation of cast iron, beginning around the mid 1700's to around 1875 will have a "gate" mark, which looks like a long thin line on the bottom of the piece. This is where the iron entered the mold. Pieces made after 1875 were engineered so the iron entered the mold from one side or the other. These pieces have a smooth bottom, with no gate mark . Most of the major manufacturers of cast iron cookware began production in the late 1870s or early 1900s. Pots with gate marks were made from the mid-1700s until about 1875.These were often used not only to make hot beverages and the like, but were often filled with water & left to steam over the fire at all times to help provide hot water for washing, laundering & general use as well as to provide humidity during the dry winter months.The bottom of this pot has a prominent gate mark & is tapered to fit on a wood fire stove or tripod ring. The handle is designed to hang suspended above an open fire. #7 is embossed upon the bird style spout.It is in Excellent Primitive condition!The original heavy duty bail style handle is not only still fully intact, it’s very solid and structurally sound. I would expect it to easily continue to hold this heavy pot for another 150 years! It is missing the original lid & shows its age with overall wear. The pot has no cracks or other damage. There is a beautiful heavy surface patina inside and out, which undoubtedly adds to it’s rustic charm, as it gracefully attests to this genuine antique’s age and history of use.This HUGE pot weighs nearly 7 lbs & measures;13½” wide X 10½” tall. The spout is 6½” long measured diagonally from spout bottom to top. The opening is 5” in diameter.This Kettle is guaranteed to be an Authentic Original Antique,it is not a reproduction. It is the perfect conversation piece to embellish a Fireplace Hearth, Antique Stove, or unique space to create an ambiance of Days Gone By.
