Description: This is a colonial open hearth cooking cast iron bowl from New England circa 1700s. The cast iron bowl with a bail handle is called a scotch bowl or scotch kettle. Scotch bowls were used in colonial open hearth kitchens for everything from cooking to heating water for washing. Scotch bowls did not have lids. What makes this cast iron bowl is the musket ball hole that is an early patch repair filled with copper (see photos). The cast iron bowl has a hand wrought iron bail handle with finely pointed pig tail ends. The cast iron bowl has a long thick raised gate mark on the bottom that is time appropriate for the mid 18th century. There are three raised feet on the bottom of the cast iron bowl.
