American iron porringers are very rare. An example similar to this one is at Old Sturbridge Village (see publications). An identical porringer was also manufactured by A. Kendrick of West Bromwich, England. The N-YHS example, however, bears no markings that clearly identify the maker or the place of manufacture.
