Arts and Crafts Copper Tea Kettle
A rare, possibly unique piece
By Thomas R. Neil
(Approximately 12-inches high to handle.)
American Arts and Crafts style form, heavy gauge hammered copper, spade tabs, dovetailed, turned wood grip on swing handle, stylized tulip shape finial, applied collar, signed on the bottom and on the back "THOMAS R. NEIL / BOSTON." Excellent condition. Although often associated with the Mid-West and West, Boston hosted the first Arts and Crafts Exhibition in 1897 featuring some 1000 objects in the new style. This is clearly not a mass produced item and, although certainly designed as a useful object it's more art than kettle, which may have been the maker's point.
Copper Tea Kettle
By J. C. Taylor
Troy - SOLD
(Approximately 10 ½-inches high to handle.)
Gooseneck spout, dovetail construction of body and bottom, beautiful old repair on right shoulder, signed on shaped swing handle, "J. C. TAYLOR / TROY." No other pieces marked this J. C. Taylor / Troy are known.
There is reference to a J. C. Taylor Hose Company 3 in Troy, NY c. 1840's. If it's the same guy he was more likely a merchant than a coppersmith. There's no way of knowing so the info is more in the "isn't that interesting" category.
