Large pot used by a Romanian Gypsy as a distilling device for making peasant brandy

Object | Accession Number: 1989.319.10 a-b

Belonged to Toma Racloro, a Romanian Roma. When he was deported from Baranesti (near Slatina) to Transnistria in 1942, he left some cookware with a Romanian peasant. Toma died; after 1945, his wife got the pots back from the peasant. This pot was used as a distilling device to make, tuca, a prune brandy.
