- One-quart cooking pot on three, semicircular feet with a flared lip, bulbous body and wire bail handle looped around triangular lugs or ears. Hollow cast with three fillets, one around rim and two around body, the lowest one is a horizontal seam; two vertical seams on upper half and single gate mark on bottom exterior. Cast-in mark on side reads "ALLAIRE / 1", in raised serif letters inside a rectangle (partially visible).
- James P. Allaire founded Allaire Iron Works, in New York, NY, in 1816, and purchased Howell Iron Works, located in present-day Farmingdale, Monmouth County, NJ, in 1822. Since Allaire Iron Works specialized in marine steam engines, it is possible pots marked "ALLAIRE" and "HOWELL" were both made in New Jersey.
