Vintage Copper English Salesman Sample Tea Kettle With Porcelain Handle, Mid 19th Century
Just a lil' sample.
Vintage copper lends an easy, warm elegance to any home without all the stuffiness. This stunning collection of one-of-a-kind finds from Coppermill Kitchen has been well-loved for generations, and now you can only get it here at Food52. Way back in the day—sometime circa 1850—an intrepid salesman used this very tea kettle as a sample to help to sell larger models of the same design (but we think this size is just right). Its original white porcelain handle is still intact, as well as its design distinctions: a gooseneck spout and dovetailed seams.
All items from Coppermill Kitchen are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
