Default Plymouth Foundry Kettle

Here's an early water kettle I've restored. It was in great condition to start with, for being used as a stove top humidifier (judging from the scale and build-up inside it). I decided not to do too much work on its interior.

Doug, a picture for the Foundry database? I couldn't find any operating dates for the foundry.

Thanks, good photo. I guess we can assume ca. 1873?

Doug, yes. Mid 1870s to 1900s or so anyway, right? I forgot to say that the cover had a patent year (only) on it of 1866.

Confused. I'm reading 1873 in the photo.

Sorry, late night posting. The 1866 date is on the bottom (inside) of the lid. The kettle has found a new home, but I recall it reading "Pat'd 1866".
