These copper kettles take over 20 hours to make by hand in a Vermont factory. The design is based on an early 1800s prototype, when the country was still young and James Madison, “The Father of the Constitution,” presided over the United States of America as its 4th President. For historical accuracy, a steel swinging-arc handle has been attached with brass hardware. The early pioneers would unload these copper kettles from their covered wagons and hang them over the fire at camp.
Because copper conducts heat much more efficiently than other materials, your water will boil faster than with conventional tea kettles. If cared for properly, the makers intend for these limited edition tea kettles to last as long as the 19th-century original and become family heirlooms.
