UNRESTORED! This one is far too rare and special for us to have risked cleaning. Sold as is.
Made to fit into a Winter Proof Base Burner slot on a stove made by A. Ingraham & Co of Troy New York (1871-1874) this is a Spoors patent boiling kettle (1869 patent). They made this in a black iron, Galvanized coating version, and zinc coated version and I believe this is the zinc coated one. All original with handmade flat stock wrought iron bail which attaches at the spout and front of kettle. There are traces of the original enameling on the interior. Not many of these survived due to the body design which was prone to cracking. There were also a number of lid designs. This is one that is not found in the grey book, though the kettle certainly is.
Marked: Troy NY on the front top of the body, and “Pat’d V. (followed by another character which I can’t read)”
5” tall, ~7” 1/4 long
No cracks or chips
