Default Itís Been a Long Time - 66 Days

Got to a Thrift store today. A couple of exciting items:

- Griswold 8 Tote-top dutch oven
- gate-marked, 3-footed cauldron
- Prizer-Ware ECI lid.

Does anybody recognize the bail wire on the cauldron?

Thanks.

Nice finds. The wire handle appears to me like it originally had a wooden piece that has probably rotted/burnt off over time. I see this type of bent wire on tea kettles sometimes. Just a guess.

Hereís the cauldron after Lye and vinegar.
Certainly looks like it was a planter at one point. Any idea what is on the side of it?

Would have had to have been made using a removable "core" that apparently wasn't applied properly.

I wasnít sure what I was going to do with the lid. Yesterday I went back to the same place and found the bottom half. That certainly was a shock to find it 4 months later. Iíve been trying to think if the store had it the back the whole time? Or did the donor donate it 4 months apart?

This is about as clean as I can get it.
