Anniston used to have a big pipe foundry. I wonder if they are related?

The only one I know left is Union Foundry. To my understanding there were several after WWII but were short lived. The opening on the pot is smaller than the belly of the pot. It is too new to be from Janney Foundry as that was a civil war era foundry or when Anniston was first founded. The pot has a chip in the rim and really is not worth a great deal but I had never seen this name before. I figured it was worth the $40.

Comment: I have a bean pot marked Alabama Pipe Co., Anniston, Alabama that I think is mid 1950s. Hilditch, the second picture shows Tommy's piece is a cauldron, am I right? It also looks like somebody used it as a planter. That happens to the big old pots a lot around here.

Now it looks like a cauldron/pot to me too. It seems it was called a cauldron long before the English started calling it a pot.
