Victorian 1800s Square Copper Tea Kettle English VR Crown Mark
This unusual nineteenth century copper tea kettle was made in England. It bears the impressed V crown R mark on both sides, which stands for Victoria Regina. The mark was in use from 1837 to about 1876. The mark doesn’t signify any royal connection other than that the item was made during Queen Victoria’s reign. The small kettle would have been used at the table, rather than to heat water on a stove or fire. The kettle is about 8-1/4 inches high to the top of the copper handle. The rectangular cube body is about 6 by 4-1/2 inches. The stationary handle, lid finial, and four legs are brass. The original brass peg handle mounts replaced were replaced by hex nuts long ago. The gooseneck spout has quite a bit of solder where it joins to the body, it may have been repaired. The solder visible at the seams is normal. There are some minor dents and dings, certainly fewer than you might expect for a roughly 150 year old household kettle like this. The only one of note is a 1 inch diagonal crease extending from the rim right above the V. It barely shows in the second photo. Be sure to take a look at my other listings.
