Hello ATSers, last November I made THIS THREAD
about magnet fishing. In that
opportunity I found a beautiful iron pot. The rusty object had been underwater for an unknown amount of time, plus almost 2 months in a box at home
until I had time to restore it.
I simply brushed and then soaked for 8-10 hours in a 50-50 vinegar/water mix. Then brush it again, rinse with baking soda and dry it. Finally I coated
with olive oil and bake it for about 2 hours at 350 degress, cool it down and wipe it with a cotton cloth. Here is the result :
Beautiful isn't it?....Now, here is where I need your help. It's been impossible for me to have a full ID of the artifact. The circle in the bottom
makes me think it could be a Griswold
, but no symbols/letters/numbers are visible
and I couldn't find a pic of a Griswold pot similar to my pot, so maybe it was made by other company.
I'd love to have more information before I exhibit it at home. Of course I can bring it to an antiques expert but maybe there is a chance that I can
reveal it with your help my friends.
