Probably used for Steamed Holiday Puddings and a very generous size of 16" Handle to Handle x 8 1/4" wide x c. 10" High
When I bought this in an Antique store in Conn. the owner thought it might be Swedish, but was certain it was from an Estate
nearby that was almost entirely European Artifacts and Furnishings.
It looks very distinctive hanging from a pot hanger and is quite the conversation piece,
when hanging one can see the beautiful star on the bottom.
I have not cleaned it, that I leave to the new owner
It's condition is very good I would think for it's age: It is quite heavy, has a tight fitting lid, and all the handles are
riveted on nice and tight. The lid was put together with dovetail seams (t is a tiny tear at top rim) and t is
a steam spout/vent on the top.
