1950's PIQUOT WARE K3 KETTLE

CAST MAGNAILIUM WITH SYCAMORE HANDLES

DSF0270 67958705e03f6949276c8d076b39937c (1)

An immaculately clean example of the K3 kettle designed in 1938, and manufatured by Burrage & Boyd. 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). This example is clean as a whistle inside and out, looking as if it has spent most of its life in a display cabinet with just light surface scratches.

Suitable for use with gas, electricity or solid fuel cookers/hobs.
(K3s are non-ferrous and therefore are
not compatible with induction hobs).
