Antique Copper Tea Kettles, Old Postcards

Stop in the shop, lots of collectibles and other neat stuff added every week. Please use links or click on images to go to the item pages.

Went to the market on Sunday, I know not why. They changed the weather forecast to possible showers and it seemed to have rained here and there so I was told by some people who showed up. After wandering around a bit and buying some stuff, I decided to set up even though it looked a little shakey in the sky. Figured I'd just use one table and grabbed the boxes closest to the back of the van. Bad move, those that did come out to shop were those of the dollar mentality and what I put out was mostly in the $10 - $20 range. Sold a few things to some of the regulars and then hung out fighting off the "I'll give ya's" and the other lower level buyers who grab their chest and make noises if the price is like over $3.00. I mean like why would I want more than a couple of bucks for a cut glass pitcher or a Lenox plate or a 14K gold ring. Anyhow It wasn't a very profitable day, not lots of fun either. Shouda just kept walking and buying. Oh well another day in the life of a market seller.

Hey, a few more weeks and it's auction time again at Country Joe's Auction.

A few goodies added to the shop yesterday.

Copper Tea Kettle, Dovetailed, Goose Neck Spout
Kit-053 Copper Tea Kettle, Dovetailed, Goose Neck Spout
Nice vintage copper tea kettle with goose neck spout. There is dovetailing on the side and around the base. The lid has been repaired, final resoldered on a long time ago. Uprights of the handle are brass as is the finial. Inside is tinned. Tea kettle is 6 inches in diameter at the base and tapers out to about 7-1/2 inches. Height to top of hollow handle is about 10-1/2 inches. Doing a little research it seems to be early 1900's possibily from England. Has a few dings and dents from use. Nice addition to your country kitchen.

Antique Dovetailed Copper Tea Kettle
Kit-054 Antique Dovetailed Copper Tea Kettle

The handle and the rim that lid fits into has been resoldered way back when. Has hollow copper hand grip. Tea kettle is 7 inches in diameter at the base and tapers out to about 8-1/2 inches and is about 12 in height. Has a few dings, pitting and dents from use. Great piece to hang by the fireplace.
