  At the risk of quenching the lust, allow me to bring it back on  
topic and
show you what can happen when you use the pot in period cooking. The
following photos of said pot at our annual (it's tradition!) Cook's  
at Pennsic:



This is what happens when you lose track of time and don't pay  
attention to
how hot your wood fire is.

Uh oh.  And I was wondering about a silly, more minor thing, of  
whether that nice, shiny copper outside was really "dishwasher safe".  
Since dishwasher detergents can often be harsh, I was wondering if  
they would tarnish the copper.  Maybe they have a coating over the  
copper to shield the copper, but then that might also "disappear" if  
you get the pot as hot over an open fire as Iasmin mentions.

I've also had quite enough of polishing copper and brass tableware,  
thank you.  Some of my earliest feastgear was brass.  Polish brass  
when you get it. Pull it out for event. Polish it again because it  
has tarnished. Take it to event and almost watch it tarnish in front  
of your face as you put food on it. Go home. Polish all the feastgear  
again. Repeat sequence for each event. No, I quit that.  
Unfortunately, pottery has a rather short lifetime with me. So all my  
feastgear is now pewter. But I don't have to polish it!
