Very cool vintage cast iron kettle, made by the Favorite Stove & Range Company in Piqua, Ohio. The kettle measures 9-7/8″ in diameter. Including the legs, it is 6-7/8″ tall. It is marked on the bottom FAVORITE PIQUA WARE 8. The kettle sits flat/level. It has a wire bail handle and the original wire assist handle.
The casting on the kettle is particularly nice – this is a pretty kettle. There is some pitting on the interior on the bottom, but nothing of particular significance. This is a beautiful kettle. Please view photos.
The kettle has been cleaned to bare iron and heat-seasoned with a mixture of coconut and canola oils and beeswax. It is ready for use and display!
