The story behind the pot as told by Elena Morato -----
"My grandfather,Mr. Herbert J.Miller Duvenall,owned a shipyard in Montevideo.In those years, in the late twenties lots of Norwegian whalers stopped in Uraguay, and the manager of the company, a Mr.Gordon Firing once gave him the pot, filled with candies, as a Christmas present.Since then it has remained in the family."

For the most part, these Pots were manufactured by the company J.T. Fell & co, probably in the 1920/30's.
