They were also used on ships during some American Wars. This extra large coffee pot with a copper exterior and tin interior is constructed with rivets, soldered seams and rolled or folded edges. Underneath the lid which is held on by the original chain, are initials scratched in the surface which appears to be "E L", from a previous owner or craftsman.
