Summary Very good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes Overall it is in very good condition. Handle is working properly. Iron has some wear, showing signs of use, particularly the bottom of the pot. Interior also shows signs of wear with some scratches and a little rust close to the top edge. Outside of pot also has some minor scratches, few smudges and some tarnish spots where the more brownish iron color is revealed. Same tarnishing of cast iron is seen on bottom around the rim .
