For your consideration, I have very rare apothecary vessel which was probably used by a druggist or someone in the medical profession. From my research on "Sani Products Co Chicago", I'm guessing this piece was probably made back in the the 1920's or perhaps even earlier. This company, in its heyday, produced porcelain coated cast iron items, mostly factory lunchroom swing out tables and stools along with laboratory items. This particular item, I'm guessing it was either used by a druggist for the storage of some kind of medication or perhaps it was used as a sterilization vessel for surgical instruments. From what I can tell, the bottom portion is cast iron and looks much like a miniature bathtub in design. On the outside, it retains its cast iron appearance, sitting on 4 case legs, but the inside is porcelain coated from top to bottom. Guaranteed to be super old and although rough looking in appearance, there's really no issues with this piece aside from some staining and scuff marks. It shows the makers name on the bottom along with the number 573; it still has its original aluminum tight fitting cover and the porcelain coating is still in really great condition, inside and out, considering the age of this piece and how much use it probably had during its life. The inside depth if roughly 6.75 inches. A really great piece for those who collect apothecary items. You'll be hard pressed to find another one of these.
