This Old Copper Pot--which
measures 10 inches in diameter
across the top, 6.75 inches on the
bottom and is 6.50 inches deep--
was given to my mother by the
husband of Mrs Gerard, an Italian
woman who lived in Truckee, California.
She cooked in this pot on her wood stove.
I recall going into her house in the early
1960s and seeing Mrs Gerard standing
over this pot, stirring because, "
You have to stir," she said, "to keep from burning."
The bottom of the pot was sunk 2.5 inches into
the hole in the stove top, as you can see the
carbon blackened bottom of the pot.
Her husband, Tony, was the blacksmith for the
Union Pacific Railroad in Truckee.
He had been a blacksmith with the
U.S. Army in Europe during WWI.
Mrs Gerard cooked or boiled water nearly ev
eryday in this pot on her wood stove in her
house beside the railroad tracks in Truckee, California.
This pot is over 100 years old, therefore, an antique.
It is made of very thick copper with a handle about 3/8 "
