1714 Pot

In stock

Details:

This is not just any cast-iron cooking pot…this is one that changed the world! You can adopt the Museum’s oldest surviving example of the patented cooking pots that were pioneered by Abraham Darby I when he used coke to smelt iron in his blast furnace instead of charcoal. He first used this technique in 1709 and this pot dated 1714 shows how the mass production of an everyday domestic essential began to revolutionise the iron industry leading to the Industrial Revolution. So although this pot may be small, it represents a massive turning point in history which has been shaping our lives since.
