I think its both parts, but then again I dont know that much about them. My son watches the moonshine show on tv and is very interested in history, and especially folk history. He was telling me how it worked.

Yes, its solid copper, the galvanized pot to the right has the copper coil inside.
My plan is to put it on the shelf as a piece of folk art.
