A medium-sized enamel or granite wear coffee pot. In very good condition, has only a very little chipping on it, otherwise perfect. Stands about 12 inches tall overall with a
8 3/4 inch base. The condition is very good with NO dents, breaks or holes. The lid fits perfectly.
The best cowboy coffee, in my mind, comes out of an enamel pot. Once the campfire is going, fill the pot with cold water and, when it boils, dump in the coffee. (The only way to know how MUCH coffee is to work at it. Your comfort zone may range from 3/4 cup per quart of water to twice that.). Let it cook for a minute -- no longer! -- and set the pot in a protected spot to steep for 5 minutes. A soft, sandy soil works well as an insulator here, and it is a good idea to cover it with a small towel.
This is a vintage gray enamel coffee pot with a bale handle. This pot is the type that was used for outside camping or on the trail. The finial top the lid are tin and in perfect condition. The bale is heavy wire. the bale handle will adjust to set straight up or swivel front to back, notice the attached piece on the back which is to grip and pour.
