‘Battersea Works, England’ Foundry Gold Assay Crucible Collection c.1890s
A fantastic collection of various sized Gold Assay crucibles from the Battersea Works Foundry. These crucibles found their way all over the world and in the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s they were traded for their actual weight in gold. They have even been found as far flung as Tasmania! Measurements for the largest crucible.
