      It is called a copper boiler. On farms they were used to scald dead chickens or poultry with boiling water so as to make the feathers easier to pull out !~

      Really ? I plucked chickens with my grandparents but it was a big open pot .
      The small stack on top has me stumped

      We also used these copper boilers, yes really and most had a long oval lid but I ould see using that top to let out less steam to hold over the middle.

      Lots of young city people here. That is part of a moonshine boiler for sure.

      You never took a bath or scalded chickens in this. The top is missing but it is part of a still.

      ^^That's kinda what I was thinking fhrjr2...copper boilers similar to that were used for *lots* of things, but that 'chimney' just screams "special purpose usage"...

      I had to think a minute. This one is missing the condensing funnel that mounts on the top
