Any Idea on Who Made This and When?
3 Attachment(s)
Hey folks, I'm new here and would love to find out who made this and when. I got this from my mother and she said it her grandmothers bean pot. I've seen these online before but they always seem to have 3 legs. I has a long bale handle, has 8 R on the bottme and is gate marked. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Any Idea on Who Made This and When?
Without a name (or even sometimes initials, e.g. "P.B. & Co.") on them, old bottom gated pieces like this are rarely if ever identifiable as to maker. Handle designs were more representative of current styles of their time rather than trademarks of a particular manufacturer, much like the handles of most early to mid-20th century skillets being more or less alike.

Thanks Doug! I was hoping someone might have something on these old gate marked pots and pans. I have acquired a few but this one was my great grandmothers so it means something to me.
