Seller: singeldad (17,547) 100%, Location: Scottsdale, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 153290024660 HERE’S AN OUTSTANDING HAND-HAMMERED ARTS & CRAFTS COPPER TEA KETTLE MADE BY CRAFTSMEN INC (A FORM OF CRAFTSMAN STUDIOS) OF LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA, THAT DISPLAYS A CANE-WRAPPED HANDLE, A HAND-HAMMERED “WARTY” SURFACE ON THE MAIN BODY OF THE KETTLE, AND BEAUTIFULLY-EXECUTED SMALL PLANISHING-HAMMER MARKS ON THE KETTLE’S SPOUT! Measuring approximately four and five eighths inches (4 5/8”) in height to the top of the handle, seven and one half inches (7 ½”) across from the end of the kettle’s spout to the opposing side, by three and one quarter inches (3 ¼”) in diameter across the top opening, this Arts & Crafts era copper tea kettle displays a hand-hammered “warty” surface on the main body of the kettle, beautifully-executed small planishing-hammer marks over the entire surface of the kettle’s spout, a relatively smooth surface on the kettle’s lid but with small hammering marks around its outside rim, and a cane-wrapped handle that also displays larger hammering marks! As you can see from the photographs shown above, this Craftsmen Inc copper tea kettle displays an “untouched” ORIGINAL very dark surface patina -- quite nice! Signed on the underside bottom with a stamped mark that shows an anvil and hammer along with the words “Craftsmen Inc. Hand Made 323” Condition: Generally very good condition with its original patina that has not been messed with in any way. To this end, there is water deposit on the kettle’s interior from many years of actual use. There is some grime build-up here and there but it lends itself to the dark patina. Also, there are two faint surface impressions on one side of the kettle that may or may not be original to the hand-made qualities of the kettle (difficult to tell). Lastly, there is some minor variation to the surface patina including small markings, minor oxidation, and simply general use wear. Overall, this original Arts & Crafts era Craftsmen Inc copper tea kettle is really quite nice – and again, not messed with in any way!
