A superb example of the elliptical-shaped Dutch tea kettle bucket of the late 18th/early 19th century. Made of mahogany, coopered and brass banded with a brass inner liner, it is of fine quality and in exceptional condition. Decorative shield-shaped brackets secure the solid loop handle to the body of the bucket. Coals were placed in the brass liner to keep the kettle warm.

This handsome piece stands 14 1/2" high to the top of the handle brackets and measures 13 3/4" wide from bracket to bracket, by 9 7/8" deep. There are no chips, cracks, deep gouges or denting. As per photo the handle is slightly 'out of round'. The mahogany slats are solid and secure within the brass bands. None of the hand-cut brass tacks holding the bands to the mahogany are missing or loose. The mahogany is a deep, rich color and has a wonderful patina with a soft hand-waxed luster.
