Antique brass jelly kettle with hand forged iron handle Antique brass jelly kettle with hand forged iron handle

Antique brass bucket or kettle with hand forged iron handle, as is with repair; unsigned by maker - we do not know the maker or the precise age, probably late 18th - early 19th century; measures about 8" tall to top rim of bucket; just over 13.5" tall with handle upright; just over 14.5" wide handle end to end (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only); weighs about 3 pounds 1 ounce.  Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition, sold as is with damage and repair - surface wear and scratching, heavy patina - a small portion was cleaned on one side, revealing the color of the brass.  Significant corrosion around the top rim and several holes to the body; one side has a repair where someone used a string to keep the handle adhered (please see photos - the top rim has split and separated in that area).
