For domestic dishes they also made wooden tubs, plates, spoons, ladles and the like.
The solution is removed by ladles or by siphons, and the residue is leached out with boiling water; this removes the sulphates.
Thus we have reasons enough why the blast-furnace has displaced all competing processes, without taking into account its further advantage in lending itself easily to working on an enormous scale and with trifling consumption of labour, still further lessened by the general practice of transferring the molten cast iron in enormous ladles into the vessels in which its conversion into steel takes place.
They consist of drinking vessels, bowls, vases, ladles and other objects of silver, parcel-gilt, and exquisitely decorated with figures in relief, both cast and repousse.
Small objects are often heaped together in perforated trays or ladles, the cathode connecting-rod being buried in the midst of them.
