    Please note all pictures on our site are of the actual piece you will receive, not a stock photo of a similar piece.  Additionally all our pieces unless marked otherwise are fully restored and seasoned.  Just wash them and start cooking.

    This is a very old kettle made by a small foundry using flask cast method.  Stylistically its very much an early American piece with a heavy bottom gate mark, New England style ears, heavy triangular legs and a square section hand wrought bail.   Side has a stylized crown like mark (inside what I think is a pair of wings) beneath the letters B and R with what looks to be a stylized flask which looks to have been an artistic interpretation of an ampersand (&) between the letters.  There is a casting void (a hole) which goes all the way though the wall of the kettle about 2/3 of the way down that right “wing”.  It is less than a 1/16” wide.  Interior is beautifully smoothed with obvious pouring flaws still visible.  \Yes you could use this but I think this should be a display piece.

    Marked “B & R” please note the “&” is my interpretation of what the artistic flask between the letters is.

    7” 7/8 diameter, ~5” 1/2 tall

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips or wobble when tested on a sheet of glass.   Cooking surface is beautifully smoothed for such an old piece, but has casting flaws.
