Red Enamel Ware Tea Kettle, Made in Poland

27 Dec

IMG_8822

Nice clean condition.  No big nicks or scratches. Vibrant reddish orange enamel ware tea kettle made in Poland.  Enamelware is very versatile. It can be heated in the oven or on the stove top or over an open fire and can be cleaned in the dishwasher without a problem.  These pieces are meant to hold both hot and cold liquids.  Polish enamelware is among the best of the bunch, especially if made before the 1950’s.  You can usually tell if you have an early piece by the weight.  The later ones are thinner and more tinny sounding when tapped.  There is usually a backstamp indicating Poland as the manufacturer.
