This is a very large and heavy metal National pressure cooker. It has temperature gauge on top, on and off switch ot top. It has to wooden handles and screw lock sides for top. National is made in Wisconsin and this one marked #12. I have no idea if it still works, but we just thought it was really cool! It stands 12" without lid and has a 13 1/4" opening. As far as condition not sure how to rate a pressure cooker so I ll list what I see. The lid srews on and off tightly, the outside has fading, inside has stain, and top gauge has rusted outside with no marks on face. I tried to picture all angles. Enjoy this old piece of fine cookin'! L&A

In 1905 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin a company was founded and named Northwestern Steel and Iron Works. It manufactured canning retorts for canneries and was a major producer of 50-gallon pressure canners. In a short time the company began production of 30-gallon canners for hotel use and shortly thereafter produced 10-gallon models suitable for home canning. In 1915 the company set up an aluminum foundry for the sole purpose of manufacturing pressure canners for home use. In 1917, when the U.S. Department of Agriculture determined that the only safe way to process low acid foods and meat was by pressure canning, all commercial canneries were forced to equip themselves with facilities that enabled them to pressure can their products. During this time, the company became one of the largest manufacturers of cast aluminum cooking utensils in the world. Its products were manufactured under the name 'National' and the company name was changed to 'National Pressure Cooker Company' to reflect its relationship to the brand name of its products
