Manning Bowman Art Deco Copper And Brass Teapot On Stand For Sale
Quintessential Art Deco tiltingcopper tea pot on stand from Manning, Bowman, & Co., founded in 1832 in Middletown, Conn. They manufactured silverware, barware, chrome kitchenware, and other metalware, as well as small electric appliances like toasters, coffee urns, percolators, and waffle irons.
This wonderful teapot was manufactured about 1935, the heart of the Art Deco movement in the US. Thisstyle is highly prized and sought after. It has all the features you'd expect from first-class Art Deco design: a square wooden base, linear copper supports with triangular feet for the pot, an off-center brass and wood handle, and a brass spout with a square cross section. The cap for the burner and the posts that support the pot on the stand are also brass. The burner sits in a cutout in the wooden base.
The pot on the stand measures about 12 inches high and 8-1/2 inches wide from spout to edge. The copper stand measures 5 x 6 x 8 inches high.
Some of the finish has worn off the wooden base. The wheel to raise the wick on the burner is frozen.
No dents or dings that I can see.
Marked on the bottom: "Manning Quality/Bowman/Meriden, Conn."
