A large late 19th century copper ships kettle by John Phillips & Co., Anderston Quay, Glasgow, of rounded rectangular form, impressed marks, 37cm high x 40cm wide. This would have been used all day every day while at sea and in the harbour and so would have had a tough life. This particular kettle seems to have survived quite well with only minor character building marks.
In well used condition with all the dents and knocks and patina which come with a working life at sea.
