Online Auction Description

What was this ancient kitchen/dining vessel used for? Scalloped metal rim, no spout, indicates it would not have been convenient for pouring or drinking. It probably holds over a quart of liquid (did not want to put water in it to measure this!).

Weathered bronze, perhaps?

Exterior pattern consists of 5 identical sets of 3 lines each encircling the body.

Interior is rough and unfinished-looking.

Bottom is even rougher, slight wear on the bottom rim.

Handle appears to be of forged iron, attached by hand.

Handle was fastened at the top, on either side, with a round-headed hand-forged nail that goes all the way through. On the inside these were hammered flat. Lower end of handle may have been re-soldered at some time in the past.

There are no holes or cracking.

Height: 6” (points on rim could add a fraction)

Diameter at base: 6”

Diameter at top: 5 1/4”

Weight: 2 lbs

This item has not been cleaned or polished. It is still a handsome decorative object. (Looks great filled with breadsticks for a party!)

Its age and place of origin are unknown. European? No marks found. A very similar one, lighter, smaller/narrower and minus the rim, is dated from the 16th Century and sold for $215.00 in 2014.
