This French, copper glue pot, known as a Bain-Marie, was produced by Aux Forges de Vulcain of Paris. The company was founded in Paris in 1807 and opened up workshops and depots in 1898 in Saint-Denis. Glue pots were used by cabinet makers and piano makers. I'm dating this glue pot to the late 19th century.
The pot measures 4.25" in height and 3.5" across the opening. The inner pot measures 3" in height.
The outer pot was used to hold water, which kept the glue (in the inner pot) at a certain temperature.
**Please note that I have not cleaned this glue pot but have left this up to the discretion of the new owner as some prefer this aged look.
