Default Tub

This tub is at a local antique store, wondering if anyone knows what it was used for and what one might expect to pay for it. I didnt get a chance to measure it but as i remember I would say over a foot wide and over 2 feet long and a foot high.

As good a guess as any, I'm not sure it's even cookware but with the tiny feet it does look like it belongs indoors.

It is a ham boiler for cooking a ham on the stovetop of yesteryear. Now we buy our hams cooked in a can.

I have one just like it. Perfect for salt cured country hams (that are still made today, and don't come in a can!). But also used as a bath tub for babies, foot soaker. Stayed on the stove and kept a general purpose reservoir of water hot when you lived in a house without running water - which they don't make any more

I have one of these ham boilers. It has a gate mark and a 7 on one handle. Any idea who made these?
