Old copper pot

Hi Kaleo,

Thank you so much for your reply and information! I have been all over the internet reading and looking at pictures of other copper pots. So far I haven't found another one quite like this. I am sooo tempted to clean it and see if there are any markings on it however, I know better. It is definitely a very early piece and it is really quite primitve. I believe it has been used a lot. I just love finding pieces like this and I truly enjoy researching items and learning about them. I love having something in my hands with so much history behind it...if only it could talk the tales it could probably tell. I would like to get an expert to look at it for the time period it is from and for a valuation, If you know someone that would be most helpful. Again, thank you for being so very kind to help me. Patti

Old copper pot

Hi I have posted to severaal antique sites without getting any help. I am hoping someone on this forum can help me identify this old copper pot. It is hand hammered copper with one side dovetail seam and dovetail seaming around the bottom. It has been hand riveted using copper rivets. The copper is very thiick and the bottom is rounded. The handle appears to be molded/cast and is either brass or copper. The pot measures 7 3/4 inches wide, 5 1/2 inches in height and with handle up it measures 9 1/2 inches in height. Thank you for any and all information!
