It has a handle which is hand-hammered. It indents like a waist line around,, Center. There are no major bumps or dents. I did not polish it this is as found and I have owned it over 50 years. It is from the Northwoods of Wisconsin or upper Michigan.
My grandfather was a Trapper for Furs in the early nineteen hundreds and is from my personal estate as I have cancer and and disposing of even my personal family Items. So give it a good home this does have a crack but it's completely repairable there's no pieces missing. The cast iron band around the top does have rust flakes. It's approximately 1/8 inch thick it is very very heavy weight I don't know how to weigh it however.
