Made by the Southard Robertson & Co foundry of Peekskill, NY, which later became the Southard, Robertson Stove Works. Piece can be dated closely as the company took the Southard Robertson name in 1860 and soon after became the Southard Robertson Stove Works before 1870. The bail is blacksmith made flat section wrought iron. Piece has an old braze repair on the bottom as well.
This kettle was designed for wood stove use and has a zinc plated, or galvanized exterior and the inside was treated too although we are not sure how it was done. Piece is a great display piece – but probably not fit for use due to a hairline crack along the bottom of the kettle. Still it’s a really cool piece of history.
Marked: “Southard Robertson & Co. 257 & 259 Water St. NY ” on the lid.
~10” diameter, ~6” high (excluding handles, spouts, lid.
hairline crack along the bottom and some wear to the interior lining.
