About

A Dutch 'doofpot' was a pot to store the not yet burned wood or other fuel. Because the jar was sealed airtight, the burning would soon stop due to lack of oxygen. The remaining residual fuel could be reused. Burning wood in a 'doofpot' becomes for example charcoal. In a medieval Dutch town with wooden houses, the systematic use of the 'doofpot' was very important to prevent fire. Leaving a burning stove or fireplace unattended was very dangerous. The doofpot is made of copper and brass and is in a good condition. The lid has a porcelain knob and the handle is made of wood. Height 39 cm.
