Finding age of copper cauldron

I won't ever use it for cooking, I think it will now become my Greek Urn!

Thank you for your help and time it is much appreciated.

Finding age of copper cauldron

Hi Kaleo,

Many thanks for your reply.

I would like to add that I have cleaned this cauldron today as it was very dirty. However, inside it is green with patination. Should I have not cleaned it?

Also I should add I am in the UK.

Thanks again for your reply.

Finding age of copper cauldron

Hello,

Please can someone help me date my copper cauldron

The only mark is 11 on the patterned brass handle. I am assuming it is hand made as the rivets holding the handle are odd sizes. I don't know why the side seems to be brass and also a circle towards the bottom.

I bought this to sit by my fire to put my logs in, so it is quite large and weighs 2.1 kg .Thank you

I am hoping someone can help me with this.

Many thanks.
