Picquot Ware was very popular in the 1950's. Teapots, water jugs, milk and sugar can often be found. The kettle, however, is the star piece in the set and quite scarce. This white version is totally contemporary and super scarce.

The sinuous, super stylish shape combines deco design with later European influences. The kettle is designed to sit directly on the stove top.

Picquot Ware was made of 'Magnailium', an alloy of manganese and aluminium that was especially developed for the range. They were cast in one piece to minimise leaks when pouring. The unknown, rarely seen smooth matt white finish is exceptional. The wooden handle is sycamore.

Designed in 1938, and manufatured by Burrage & Boyd the K3 kettle was initially produced under their 'Newmaid' name, before being re-branded as 'Picquot Ware ' when post war production was stepped up and the range increased to include full tea sets.

In good vintage condition. A slight pink mark on the lid and some spotting (paint?) and some damage to the lacquer to the handle above the spout.
