I discovered a super cool antique pot in an antique store over this last weekend. It's heavy, has a hand forged iron handle, copper rivets and a half-work trademark. It's also smeared with some kind of lead/tin on the inside?
Being NEW to the world of antique copper, I'm a bit lost when it comes to the identification of such a vessel. I'm also wondering if I could use it? Any information about it, or about it's trademark would be super helpful... I'm striking out on my own attempts to search for it.
