This cauldron is based on an intact example from Telemark, Norway, now in the Historisk Museum, Oslo. Its plates are arranged in horizontal bands, and the middle band has a protruding lip at its upper edge to increase its rigidity. The cauldron pictured has been made 42 cm across the brim, with a capacity of ~20 L – currently the largest cauldron we have made. The original probably has a capacity of 10-15 L.
Offered tightly riveted and ready to be sealed with a batch of porridge – we have only had good feedback about this experience. For those who prefer it, this cauldron can also be made with tinned seams (+$50) or completely tinned inside (as shown, +$100). Also available in different sizes, with a chain, tripod, lid, etc.
