Listed above is an ingenious discovery that hails from colonial times. It’s called a fire starter pot. I believe this one is made of cast iron. It weighs about 6lbs and it measures 4 ¾” in diameter across the mouth, it sits about 7 ¼’ high with lid to the tip of the lid top, it’s circumference is approx. 16” around at it’s widest part. It has three solid cast iron legs, cast iron lid and comes with a soapstone wand but unfortunately the wand is not in ideal condition and is missing it’s soapstone. A fire starter is usually made of some kind of metal, clay or ceramic material and I do believe that this one is cast iron, however I am not a hundred percent sure. It does appear that it had at one time been completely black and it seems most of that black surface has been worn down in across most of it. I believe the pittings are what is called a hammered effect but dont’ quote me. I mistakenly took this item to be a cast iron cauldron and found out later that I was mistaken. What a fire starter is for is for helping start fires of course. Back in the old days this was a handy and quick way to start fires without the use of kindling. How it’s used is: The fire pot is filled with a flammable liquid such as kerosene and then the wand that usually has a soapstone attached is then sat in the flammable liquid. Then to light a fire the wand is pulled out and the kerosene on the soapstone is lit and placed against a log. The kerosene on the soapstone burns for a bout 10 min at a high temperature and this in turn gets the fire goin but with out the fuss or need for papers and kindling.
I do not know whether a new wand is purchasable for this lovely little peice and a search of google did not turn up much.. however I am not a great googler either. So perhaps anyone interested may be able to find out quicker than I.
Either way I am promoting this item as something that would be an interesting peice on an altar and would be great used as a witch’s cauldron. Heavy cast iron and able to handle very hot temperatures for all your spellwork!!
