Badger's Den Trade kettle hudson bay pot copper brass bucket

Up for auction today is a Tin Lined BRASS TRADE KETTLE . This is a size "0" as can be seen on the bottom. On the ears is a "10" and after measurement I confirmed that it holds about 10 cups even with the rim. Dimensions are approx 4.75 inches high x 7.5 inches diameter (rim) x 5.25 inches (base).

This style was used for everthing from water buckets to cookware. This replica of American Brass Kettle Manufacturing (as seen in circle on the bottom) is an authentic and practical camp accessory. Introduced to the Indian trade as early as the Mid 1700s, they remained popular until well after the Civil War. These buckets are made using the spinning method, just like the originals.

The photos depicted are a representation of what you will receive. The bucket you receive is NEW. However, t are smudges, very light dings or scratches from packing in our portable store to and from various Historical Events, Rendezvous, Heriage Days, and Reenactments. Nothing significant and no extra charge.

These are wonderful to cook in. We have used one of these since we began reenacting. One pot meals are a great thing to learn when you have large groups but are restricted due to size of camp gear. This is easy to carry around compared to cast iron. Much easier to handle. Great for stews, wild rice dishes or foods that are acidic. The tin lining is needed to deal with the acid in the food.

This would be a great item for the blanket trader or even for your plunder box for round robin trading! A great Birthday , Mother's Day , Father's Day , or Just Because gift idea too!

Whether you reenact F & I, Rev War, War of 1812, Civil War, LARP, NWTA, Mountain Man, or Rendezvous (or any other letters we couldn't think of), this would be a great item for your gear!
