An oval, Victorian copper kettle. This is a good, practical size. It is stamped with a number ‘6’ on the handle and this would probably relate to it holding 6 pints. It is marked, to the base, with a monogram of letter B’s and it dates from c.1860. It is made from a substantial gauge of copper and it has castellated seams around the base and up the side. There is a brass rim to the kettle, brass fittings to the handle and a brass, mushroom shaped finial to the lid. It is in excellent condition and the tinning, to the interior, is still in very good, usable condition.
