Marietta Glue Pot

Not exactly cookware, but related to my own interests.
Here is a size 0 glue pot I restored recently. It is marked Marietta PA along one side of the rim, and 0 with a raised B mark on the other. The small pot also has what looks like a raised 0 on the bottom of it. There is a gate mark across the bottom of the larger pot.
Hide glue granules are mixed with water in equal volumes in the small pot. Water is heated in the larger pot, creating a double boiler to heat and melt the hide glue into a useable product.
The fourth photo shows two musical instruments old enough to have been glued together using hide glue prepared in a pot like this one.

They must have produced a very large amount of those glue pots in all different sizes because whenever I am out looking for iron I usually run across 1 or 2, I am guessing these were  a valuable tool not only for shop work but for home use also, Hide glue pots are still in use today although many are the electric version

Spurgeon, I was at the Columbus flea market this morning and saw 2, both were pretty rusty and crusty but still able to make out the Marietta on them

Figured I would add these photos here. I had never seen a 000 (triple zero) size glue pot. This one is even marked Marietta, PA. There was also an unmarked 00 size glue pot, but it was in real rough shape. The triple zero easily fit in the palm of my hand, but it would be a cleaning challenge for sure.
