Continental Mid 19th Century Brass Cauldron with Wrought Iron Handle



French or Flemish mid 19th century large brass cauldron with hand wrought iron swing handle. This heavy quality brass 18 inch dovetailed cauldron was made with a thick band of copper under the lip area to reinforce the structure of the cauldron. This was not uncommon in cauldrons of this size, as when full, they were exceptionally heavy and the stress to an unreinforced lip over time could be catastrophic. Today these cauldrons are often used as log holders next to a fireplace or stove or as a planter for a tree or large planting. Circa 1850. Measures: 18 inch.
