Revolutionary War Period Household Items

The Iron Cooking Pot itself is separate and measures about 5.5” in diameter x 3.25” high, having three small feet on its bottom for balance. It is placed upon its mated circular three legged iron Trivet Stand which measures about 4.75” tall with a long an 8.25” attached handle, which extends gradually upward for a total height of 9.25”. This stand would normally be placed within the fire pit, pressed down for stability. One leg is slightly shorter, possibly as made.
