Vintage Copper French Tea Kettle, Late 19th Century
Put the kettle on.
This french-made tea kettle, c. 1800, is made from heavy gauge copper and features a tiered lid and a solid copper finial. The thick copper handle swings and is attached with hand cut copper flanges and rivets. The underside of the kettle and the handle are stamped with the capacity: “3L” for the 3-liter medium size, which holds 3 liters, and “4L” for the 4-liter large size.
