This is a little Wagner Ware “hot pot.” It works to put hot oil in it on your stove when you are making patty molds. You can also use it, of course, to hold butter or nuts or whatever your little heart desires. 🙂
The pot is marked on the bottom WAGNER WARE SIDNEY -O- with the product number, which is 1368. It is just about 4-1/4″ in diameter and 2-3/8″ tall. It has been cleaned to bare iron and heat-seasoned with Crisco vegetable shortening. It is ready for use and display!
