is the little favorite enameled or just slathered in oil? (I've seen them enameled and just bare iron).

My first thought was itís paint, so I slathered it in paint stripper - didnít do a thing. Then it went in to a lye bath - didnít do anything.

So I guess it must be enameled. I wish it wasnít.

I've seen one of these in a kind of brownish almost woodgrain looking enamel... and if in good condition is probably worth more than the bare iron one... but this one might benefit from removing the remaining enamel, given all the chipping and missing bits. I've heard of people using a 'blasting cabinet' or sandblaster, but I'm not sure what kind of media they use that is hard enough to remove the enamel, but not so hard that it affects the iron... and that would be very important... you don't want to hurt this lil' guy.
