Default An "Erie" old mysterious kettle...

Hello friends.
I found this odd gate marked cast aluminum kettle today at the flea market for $3. I have scoured the web but can't seem to find so much as a picture of anything quite like it. Only marking is the ERIE on the lid. Inside has about 1/4" of lime scaling it it, at first I thought maybe someone mixed plaster inside, but no, it's just been used a few times!
Does anyone know when this may have been produced? Was it made by the Griswold Mfg. Co.? Is it rare or valuable? I couldn't find anything comparable on eBay or anywhere else. Any information or speculation is appreciated.
