L, F & C Cast Iron Glue Pot and Hide Glue Book for Sale

Not to be confused with a cast iron ink well, this is actually a double boiler glue pot from Landers, Frary & Clark.  This particular glue pot is the very one illustrated on Page 30 of Hide Glue – Historical & Practical Applications, a signed and annotated copy of the book which will be included in the purchase price.  One of a kind, so to speak.

Gluepot

I thought I would give people who follow my blog the first chance at this before I list it at an auction site.  The glue pot I am selling does have a missing lifting handle on the lid and some rusting.  I am in the process of cleaning my other one and it is a nightmare which I will discuss later on this blog.

This is a collector’s item, but it is also a usable glue pot that has served me well for several years.

The price is $150.00  plus $15.00 Domestic Shipping or $30.00 International Shipping for the glue pot and book.  Gnomon is for scale only and is not for sale.  If you are interested it will go to the first person sending me an email at stephen@fullchisel.com.
