Having a Dutch pot is a staple of the Jamaican family. The Dutch Pot dates back to the Iron-Age. This was when man was experimenting in casting iron and creating all kinds of vessels, for a variety of reasons.
The Dutch Pot first arrived from the Netherlands, along with the explores in the Mid 1600's. The tribal Africans saw these pots and seeing the uses, traded animal hides and other things for them.
The Dutch Pot made from aluminium scraps and river sand is today manufactured by Carib Metals from Falmouth, Trelawny.
Made from aluminium scraps and river sand, the Dutch pot is today manufactured by Carib Metals, in the 18th century commercial capital of Falmouth, Trelawny.
