6 Quart Antique Copper Water Kettle

This antique solid copper 1800s water kettle is massive compared to modern kettles - I measured out six quarts of water and it still didn't come all the way up to the rim. It's very attractive as well, with embossed teardrop or flower petal designs around the upper shoulder. The kettle is 6-1/2" high to the rim, not including the lid, about 11-1/2" high to the top of the handle when raised. It measures 9-1/4" diameter across the bottom.

The handle and hinged mountings are cast iron with a wood grip. One mounting has partially separated from the kettle, it's still firmly in place but there's a crack to the metal underneath. The spout has been re-soldered at the base and the repair held - the kettle does not leak. The bottom has some fireplace carbon deposits and scorch marks but they're not heavy. There are a few small dents and dings as you can see but for its age I think it's held up remarkably well, and the patina is wonderful. I find no markings, which is typical for a mid 19th Century American piece like this.
