Fascinating and fabulous. We have found no record of this precise form, but the legs, feet and the loop braces between legs and the bowl are typical of English and European work of this period. Square sleeve to take wooden handle. The two rear feet have worn more than the one under the handle, which would not have been as deep into the fire. Nice ring decoration to the rim. The helmet-shaped bowl cast in one piece. Great old surface. Ex Frank Cowan collection, now you can add it to yours.
