I saw this pot in use at an open hearth cooking event, 18th century, Dutch. Rounded bottom, hangs on a trammel.



Is there a particular / specific name for this type of pot?

TIA

Bev Altrath, one of the two open hearth cooking presenters at Bouman Stickney answered this for me:

"The cauldron is a Dutch Hemispherical Kettle from Peter Goebel at Goose Bay workshops (www.goosebay-workshops.com). He makes two sizes. Mine is the larger and he custom made the lid for me."

I have a similar shaped cast iron pot with a lid and little legs to hold it steady by the fire if needed. It is called a Dutch oven, but I mainly use it as a cauldron for cooking stews and things over a wood fire in the woods.
