A beautiful specimen of French workmanship during the 1700s and 1800s, this is easily one of the most gorgeous cauldrons we've ever sourced! It is clearly handmade, with a hand hammered finish, hand forged iron swing handle, beautiful hand cut, brass-brazed dovetailed seams and hand rolled copper rivets. It has been expertly restored for everyday use and re-lined with food safe tin. This sort of cauldron was originally hung over a fire for cooking stews, but it sits flat and may be used as a pot or used as a gorgeous way to display fresh cut flowers! Heavy and sturdy. C. 1780-1850.
Approximately 5.75" high and approximately 8" diameter opening. 10.25" diameter at base and 10.5" high when handle is raised.
