This large family size kettle is perfect for wood stove top use. Manufactured by Wagner Ware of Sydney, Ohio in the early 1900's this piece is in good condition. The handle and cover are in tact and with only slight warping (possibly from manufacture) on the bottom will sit almost perfectly flat on any level surface. There are mineral stains/build up on the inside and a drop or two of blue paint (from a previous life) but with a good cleaning will be ready to provide many more years of service. 5-quart capacity makes this kettle excellent for hydrating wood heated areas.
