Hand-made antique pot in soapstone with handles on the sides. The pot is an unusual item today as its status was very low and many were discarded when they went out of fashion by the late 1800s. From northern Sweden and made around 1830 to 1840. The pot is in good condition with some traces of use. Soapstone (täljsten) is a type of metamorphic rock that is relatively soft and easy to work with. It’s also a good conductor for heat, hence why the material was used for making pots.
