Copper Cooking Vessel

Content Description: 

This large pitcher, found in the galley section of the ship, was probably used for cooking or heating liquids. The large flared base would have efficiently collected heat for cooking while also lowering the center of gravity, making it more stable and less likely to tip over while at sear. The small mouth has a slight indentation opposite the handle, forming a spout for pouring. Mineralogical testing indicates the interior was probably lined or coated with tin.
