Large Antique Majestic Graniteware Cooking Kettle Soup Stock Pot in Brown and White

For those hungry man mealtimes, here we have a large old Majestic brown and white spatter graniteware kettle cooker or deep pot that certainly lives up to its Majestic name. Measuring 7-5/8 inch high and 10 inch in diameter, the weight on this iron cooker comes in just under 5 pounds!

The base color is an espresso or rich dark chocolate brown with a fine spattering of white. There is a tag that swivels on one side of the rim that's marked with the Majestic name. Helen Greguire's book suggests that it may have been used to hold a tin lid in place, although as with her example, none was with this cooker as well. I note that when flipped up, the design and shape of the tag keeps it from going beyond a 90-degree angle from the cooker's side, with the side groove on the underside suggesting that it may have been used to help the kettle sit or hang from some other thin bar. Another possibility is that, given the weight of the pot when full, the tag serves as a lifting handle to help tilt and drain or pour contents from the kettle.

Greguire's second book shows an ad (in the brown and white section) for Majestic kitchen wares, with a smaller, similar Majestic cooker shown, explaining how Majestic Ware was given free when you attended a demonstration and purchased a Majestic cooking range.

Companion pieces also available are listed below.

Overall I'd say this kettle cooker is in fabulous shape, especially considering its age, which may well approach 100 years! There's a shallow flake in the high gloss enamel ware near the base along one side, well-disguised by the rich, deep color. The inside and underside of the base both show signs of use, but neither are detracting and both could be improved with a more thorough cleaning.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
