A true Old West Cowboy/Civil War collectable. A very large tin coffee pot. In near perfect condition. This pot stands about 13 1/2 inches tall to the top of the lid and 16 inches overall to the top of the bail.
The copper bottom measures 10 1/2 inch in diameter. This Chuckwagon pot will hold 2 1/2 gallons filled to the brim. (Half gallon larger than the typical farm house enamel pot.)
I would call it a 2 gallon pot. This is the real deal like those used on the cattle round ups.
This is the type of pot old cooky kept on the fire all day. Made to handle a big round up, were the 2 gal. pot was the standard.
These coffee pots in this condition are hard to find. They where simply used up or just left to rust away.
This is a vintage Coffee Pot with a bale handle.
The grip on the bale handle is wood. The condition is near perfect, NO dents, NO breaks, NO leaks or NO cracks. The only flaw is the solder spots on the outside. This was NOT DONE to stop a leak, but to test
the solder during assembly and no solder shows on the inside.
I doubt you will find a better one. This is the best 2 gallon TIN pot I have ever seen. Old Cookies pride.
