Default Re: DO with an eclipse in the lid

Eclipse was/is a brand name used by the John C. Kupferle Foundry Co. in business in St. Louis since 1857. They primarily made/make plumbing fixtures like fire hydrants, but also did household implements. Similar antique lazy susan nail cups are seen marked both J.C. Kupferle St. Louis and Eclipse St. Louis. The bottom of the pot in your photo appears to say the latter.
