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. The mirror polished body is cast in one piece from Magnailium, a specially developed alloy of aluminium & magnesium, which explains the kettle's sculptural fluidity, also preventing drips when pouring. Handles shaped from Scycamore add to the distinctive appearance, they are meant to be scorch proof but we have seen many which have been left to boil dry and have irreparable damage. These kettles are often beyond repair inside, chemical de-scalers react with the alloy eating away at the surface so should not be used (try a gentler vinegar and bi-carb mix avoiding the polished outer surface).

We have two currently in stock, one in very good condition with minimal wear inside and out which has just been fitted with a brand new old stock handle & knob
