This is a wonderful Antique Cast Iron Kettle for use either in a fireplace or oven. While this piece does have some rust, the rust has not penetrated the metal and the kettle still holds liquid. There is no makers mark on this piece, which is not unusual for this type of item, we estimate that this kettle dates to the mid to late 1800's. Wonderful as it is, a little cleaning will remove the rust and reveal the black paint that can still be seen on the outside of the kettle. This can either be restored to use as a cooking tool or fabulous decorative piece.
Rather large, the pot portion of this kettle measures 10 inches in diameter x 6 3/4 inches tall, and the handle adds another 5 1/2 inches to the overall height. The weight is 9 pounds.
We will not clean this item prior to shipment, it will be shipped "as is".
