Benson Spirit Kettle*
Copper and brass kettle on a brass stand with spirit burner made by that great exponent of the Arts & Crafts movement, William Arthur Smith Benson (1854-1924) who came from a family of Quakers.
The kettle has a delightfully stylish shape and still sports its original wicker wrapped handle which is in excellent condition.
The three legged brass stand houses in the centre a removable receptacle, complete with hinged lid, containing the spirit and the wick.
Marked WAS Benson on the removable kettle lid and dating from the late 1800’s.
Approximately 23.5 cm in height and in good clean condition, commensurate with its age.
