Tripod Cauldron

Scottish, c.1800

Cast iron. Signed "Edingtons" for Thomas Edington of Glasgow (1742-1811) owner of the Phoenix Foundry, and founder of the firm Thomas Edington & Sons. A 17th-century form still being made in the 19th century, showing that hearth cooking in cottages continued long after the invention of stoves. Old, untouched surface. The highly visible casting marks give it character (as well as keeping the cost down)! Was $575 Good condition with original handle.
