This very old copper kettle is still serviceable and water tight. It was hand formed with layers of copper, dovetailed, braised and hammered, and the interior looks to be zinc coated. I never recommend that these be used for tea or boiled water because 19th century folks were not aware of the dangers of lead, and I can't be sure what kinds of materials were used to braise the piece. However, save from very few minor issues such as some metal fatigue ( has just one spot shown in pictures), and very few tiny dents for the advanced age, this is a phenomenal example with an absolutely gorgeous patina! Big and heavy, measures 7 inches in diameter and the body 5 and 1/2 inches tall to the lid's ribbon top. One of the best you will find; nice ribbon top adds a bit of decoration. And did I mention? It has a bug door on the spout! When water boils it will rattle and doubles to keep insects out of the kettle. Fantastic kitchen or old school fireplace display!
