Antique Copper Kettle or Cauldron - Brass Bottom - Cast Iron Handle

This is a forged primitive kettle with great old patina - it is heavy weighing 5 pounds. The copper is hammered and it is dovetailed with the brass bottom. Copper bails are riveted to pan. Has pounded edge pour lip. Bottom is rounded so does not sit flat.

Kettle is 5.5" high (7.5" to top of bails & 12" high with handle) and 9.5" in diameter.

The kettle has been well used - it has a few tiny holes around dovetails so leaks liquid but could be re-brazed. This is still an outstanding collectible very old piece.
