This is the first miniature op this kind that I have ever found. Made exactly as the large ones. This is also called a jam pot. They were used to make preserves. The larger "grown up" jam pots came in several sizes, the smallest ones were used for taffy making. This baby one was made for a child. 3.75 " diameter on top, 3 " on the bottom. 4.25" to the top of the iron handle. The body is 1.75" deep. There are a couple of dents on the bottom, it was after all played with. They do not detract. All in all an unusual miniature. Circa 1890's
