The top has a swinging lid-with a beautiful Star and the number 7.
When my friend gave it to me-we stood and talked about how many times the tea kettle must have been used through the years. How many times it had been filled with water and set on an old wood stove-or maybe hung over an open fire. That's the main reason I love the tea kettle-all the history that lives inside the cast iron makes it priceless to me.
Do you know how old it is? Have you ever seen a tea kettle like it? Do you know who made it?
Now for the 2nd mystery. See the nut like thing above-I've been trying to figure out what it is all summer. About a week ago, a friend sent me a pic of one he found to see if I knew what it was. At first glance he thought it was a Hazel Nut.
