#68 – 5869 – 0012 - 1900′s cast iron cauldron off an old farm on the prairies. These big old cauldrons were used for a varity of jobs. Main purpose was to heat water and place in the old tractor during winter days before starting it. This prevented the tractor to instantly freeze up plus of course making it easy to start. This is one of the largest cauldron I have run accross measuring 33″ dia x 24″ deep. I am not sure but my guess is that it’s capacity is about 45 gallons. The two lifting/holding knobs located on each side on top are in good condition. There are two 1/4″ dia holes that have been drilled in bottom for draining purposes. There are no cracks or brakes and is in very nice condition. There is a bit of rust showing which is a common trait of these cauldrons.
