Enameled Cookware

March 23, 2016

Enameled CookwareThis enameled cookware came from a late 1800s general store and apothecary site in Prairie du Chien. Around 1850, Americans began owning enamel-lined culinary utensils that were very plain. During the 1860s, enameled cast-iron pots were produced. By the 1870s, enameled kitchen ware was popular, and styles of enameled goods included spatter, speckled, and splashed designs.
