Tea Kettle, Copper, Arts and Crafts
By Thomas R. Neil
A rare, possibly unique piece
(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.
Early 19th Century
Brass and wrought iron
Beautifully constructed, the top with applied brass ornamentation above shaped and pierced apron, raised on square to round legs with round conical feet; the legs joined by box stretcher with crossed and pierced shelf. Unusual mortis and tenon construction.
Dimensions: 12.5-inches high, 11.5-inches wide, 9.5-inches deep.
Frying Pan, Spider
As depicted, a hand-forged flat-bottomed spider; the tall feet are flared and flatted where riveted to pan as is the long handle with neatly scrolled hanging ring. (Overall length: 24.25-inches; height: 8-inches; diameter: 11.5-inches.)
Stoneware Jar, Six Gallon, With Cobalt Decoration
Stoneware jar with dark cobalt floral decoration and Albany glaze interior.
