This is a very unique, rare collectible set consisting of a rare hand made Cast Iron Trivet (Base, Stand) for the large Cast Iron Kettle w/ornate lid to sit on. The trivet is what is super unique and rare, especially with the beautiful flower on the base. These are special pieces for the special person who admires history and unique one of a kind items, as I have never seen a hand made flower relief on a trivet base stand anything like this.
The offset flower and legs on the base are indicative of the hand made craftsmanship. Kettle is flat bottom and has a chefs hat metal handle and a really nice curved goose neck spout.Both pieces kettle & trivet (base, stand) are heavy cast iron. The stand is very unique, it has 3 legs and a metal flower on the under side in the center.
You could set the kettle, teapot, or a nice nice cast iron fry pan on it. Has some rust due to age, but it sure makes the teapot have a beautiful reddish rusty metal patina.
The items are in good condition for the age. I do not see any cracks or major damage.Please look closely at all photos as they are part of the description. Research indicates may be early 1800's or... Maybe you know more and want to share.
Hats off to the craftsman! Measurements are approximate, but close. Kettle 12"h x 10 1/2"w, Approximately 9 lbs.Trivet 2 3/8" h x 11 1/2"w, Approximately 9 lbs. Just a comment & suggestions: All I can say, is the kettle, lid & trivet are special (just my opinion), she is gorgeous! I can only imagine the people that used it and lived around it, an amazing history could be told. The kettle and trivet are super neat, super cool, unique, beautiful and a fantastic artistic collectors display piece. You may want to display it with the trivet (base, stand) leaning against a wall so you can see the flower underside, and set the kettle next to it, say, maybe on a fireplace, at the cabin, man's cave, ranch, farm, tack room, display cabinet or even at work as a cool doorstop and conversation piece.
Nothing eases the work day as a little piece of home in the office. I would love to see it near a kitchen fireplace, to be admired while enjoying a quality meal.
