    Looks like a Crucible. Used for melting metals. Possibly Copper by the greenish looking residue.

    That would be my guess too. Where'd you get it?

    Northern Native American (Nipmunk) Google massachusetts Native American Musems it will give places to go to and historians to speak with on this pot. The book (the New England Indians) copy right 1996 by C Keith Wilbur will also explain how why and when all of this took place. I also enjoyed the book (Early History Of Webster , Dudley And Oxford) copy right 2001 by Paul J. Maacek and James R.Morrison . Please take care of your pretty stone crock it is a great find

    definitely a crucible. i've seen some just like it from a studio where they cast bronze statues. they are very collectible as modern urns or planters.
