Small 18th c. Cast Iron Butter Pot
A nice condition and exceptionally scarce small cast iron butter pot or posnet, c. 1750-1800.
The pot, probably American, has no cracks or repairs and stands on three full-height feet. Found more typically in
larger sizes, the diameter of this butter or sauce pot is 3-1/4" and the entire length is a shade over 6-3/4". Cast in one
piece, the casting sprue is on the bottom.
