Product Description

A rare and impressively large Georgian Copper & Brass Kettle that shows plenty of character and use and was probably the property of a large country estate home.

It is fashioned in the same way as traditional kettles, but has a capacity of over 45 pints of water (20 litres). The kettle has a multitude of small knocks and bruises and the base has been repaired in the past, not least as it may have rested directly on a fire.

We have tried to find other examples of this size of kettle, without success, so can only conclude that they were very rare. The spout, on the other hand is quite normal in size, so would have filled bowls or cups, not bathtubs.

There are no maker’s marks. Despite the wear, the kettle does not appear to leak water.

Size: 45 x 31 x 40 cm (17 ¾ x 12 ¼ x 15 ¾ inches)
Weight: 3815 g
