Anybody know what this pot is called or what it is used for? I bought it at a flea market just because I had never seen one like it. I collect cast iron and have several dutch ovens, but never ran onto anything like this. It is heavy cast iron, 11 1/2 inches in diameter, stands on 3 legs. 6 1/2 inches tall. I haven't had time to clean it up and season it, but I intend to. Any suggestions?

I am no expert on CI, but I would venture to say it is a bean pot made by some long gone local mfg. Having said that, It looks like it is in remarkable shape, just get the rust off and season here up good. It's a shame the lid is gone. Might be able to get a lodge that will fit close. Cool pot none the less.

I thought about a wash pot, but this one is too small for a wash pot. It would probably hold 1 1/2 gallons.

I also thought about a smelting pot. I have seen babbitt melting pots used by old time plumbers, but all of them were much smaller than this pot. All the babbitt pots I have seen would hold a quart or less.

Thanks for your suggestions.
