As the family stopped keeping pigs after WW2, it must be pre-war, probably 1920s or earlier. It's made of grey cast iron; if you hit one of these with a sledgehammer they fracture and you can see the grey grain structure of the casting.This one may break if you drop it too far. There are three lugs on the outside, just below the rim. People suggest using these as planters. If your ambitions are bigger than the average, this is the one for you. The last day is probably 17 November.
