scarce ! period Maine redware - single serving BEAN POT



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Too small for anything but single serving camp use, these little 3 high by 3 inch mouth diameter, pottery bean pots must have lost favor for all else as period examples have disappeared from the scene even here in Maine where the little native red-ware pot was a natural to the baked kidney bean eating Yankee. Easy to carry and high in protein, dried beans were plumped by soaking in water prior to being place in the pot with, if one were so fortunate, a healthy portion of molasses, touch of brown sugar, pinch of dried mustard then topped with a cube of salt pork. Buried to the rim in the coals of a campfire with a flat stone to cover the mouth and hold in heat, the little pot would soon offer a tasty, trail hardy meal. Emanating from a Maine farm attic, this little gem remains in excellent, unused condition and offers good period characteristics to include the telltale raw outer surface with interior glaze. Consistent with the field practice of using a stone, there is no inner lip for a cover as was common to larger homebean pots. Surviving in as new and unused condition with no chips, cracks, or other issues this little period Maine baked bean pot will be a nice find for the Civil War era personal item enthusiast! Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
