An interesting shaped, two handled, copper cooking pot. This piece dates from c.1850 and it would have been used for cooking on an open fire. It is well made, from a heavy gauge of copper, and it has castellated seams around the base and up the side. It has two strap form handles to one side of the pot and a further one to the lid. These are all attached by brass rivets. The lid is stamped 'F. ABADIE' This was probably the name of a previous owner. There is minor denting to the piece, from use, but generally it is in good condition. The tinning, to the interior, is worn so it could no longer be used for cooking and is purely decorative.
