A small, and very interesting, 19th century, copper pot with two brass handles. This piece is very well made, from  a very heavy gauge of copper, and it has a castellated seam up the side, by one of the handles. It dates from c.1860. The handles are cast in an attractive shape but I don't the purpose of the pot, and why the handles are close together. The interior was originally tinned, so it was made to contain food, but the tinning is now worn. It is in excellent condition. It is a good size to use as a wine cooler.
