Product Description

A very rare late Victorian large copper and brass kettle that has the unusual adornment of a brass finial in the shape of the bust of Robert Baden-Powell.

This, we understand, was produced to celebrate the successful Defence of Mafeking, during the Boer War, however, as Baden-Powell also founded the Boy Scouts, it could also be associated with nthat. The only other example that we have seen did have engraved 'Mafeking Oct 17 1899 - May 1900'.

It is part of a collection of Scouting and Baden-Powell memorabilia, that we have recently purchased and are offering.

The condition is good, with just a few bruises to the heavy gauge copper and one hole to the base.

Size: 32 x 21 x 32cm (12 1/2 x 8 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches)
Weight: 1937g
