This super stylish kettle combines deco design with later European influences.
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 wooden handle is sycamore.
The kettle holds 3pt / 1.7l and is designed to sit directly on the stove top.
Very slight damage to the surface finish beside the handle on the lid.
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.
