Default 20 gallon cast iron caldron

I have a very old cast iron Caldron kettle, with feet. I think it's a 20 gallon. It is on the kettle #14, and the maker NORTH, CHASE, & NORTH, made in Philadelphia. We think it's from the early 1900's. They would use these cauldrons for either washing clothes, or when butchering pigs, would fry the fat to make cracklings.
I am trying to find out it's worth as I need to sell it. Would anyone here have ANY IDEAS about this caldron.
I am trying to post the pictures so I hope I was successful.
Thank you

They didn't fry fat to make cracklings, they rendered the fat to make lard and cracklings were the residue left over. Sort of a reward for all the hard work.

I look at it as being more "information" than "correction". 😊

This was way before my day but I did see people once use a Caldron such as I have frying cracklings.

I've tried a couple times to find some info on North, Chase, & North, but haven't really found anything of substance as far as company history. If you ever get some pics of it, sure would like to see them.

Kevin / D Menard.
Here is a link where as I posted some info regarding North Chase & North that may be of some interest to you guys.

I didn't buy it because I wasn't sure what I would do with it once I got it home.
