Where the idea came from that it was a pail or bucket, is hard to guess.
So this "pot" may have been his, and may have (as you suggest) been quite empty.



All I can say to that is, you should try it sometime. See how far you get
You’re right. It was likely a pewter mug. But handy enough for all those semi-liquid bits&bobs.
