I bought this vintage copper lid, which I believe is zinc-lined (it is non-magnetic), several years ago just because I thought it was cool, not knowing what it was for. Possibly you know, or have an idea, and have a use for it.  It  has an approximate 9 1/4" diameter, and the inner dimension inside the rim is about 9 1/8". It is about 3" tall, including handle, and weighs a bit over 2 pounds 5 ounces. The top has a movable vent cap. It has the patina of age, with some spots of verdigris, but would polish up nicely if you'd like to do so; there are some light scratches near the handle, and  you can see the bright copper beneath. The rivets for the handle and vent appear hand-applied, showing  its age. You'll see what appears to be a crack near the rivets connecting the vent. This continues straight up the vent, appearing to be where that part was joined rather than a crack. There are a couple of bends along the rim. At one place the rim has slightly separated, directly below the upper rounded rim part that is separated where it was likely joined. Don't know. I've heard comments that it could be the top for a milk can, or a lid for cookware, like a cooking pot or pan. Your comments are welcome. Please check photos closely and ask if you have any questions. SHIPPING: will ship to U.S. addresses only. Shipping weight will be over 3 pounds, and I'll invoice you with least  expensive rate, with maximum amount of $18.90 for a large flat rate priority box. If you live in the western states, or particularly Pacific Northwest, it could be cheaper, depending on distance. Contact me for rates to your zip code if  you wish. I'd like to save you money, too, if possible. But PLEASE wait for invoice before paying.
