Seamless patina copper cauldron with 2 riveted zinc coated handles and original interior tinning.

The pot has no rust, leaks or cracks. It does have some dings, dents and scratches which are visible in the photos.
It has a rolled rim, measuring 21" across and 12" high. The (still) securely riveted handles extend about 1 3/4" from the side. The tin lining or spelter is worn and the copper is visible on the inside.

There is no manufacturer mark visible anywhere on the pot. It is much lighter than a pot of cast iron, weighing about 12lbs.
All indications are that it was made in the 1800's ; used for cooking, laundry and easily transported.

It's still very functional : great for holding logs, ice and beverages, rolled paper or towels, or there is always : double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble...( It should not be used for any sort of meal preparation unless the tinning is redone).
