Rare Antique Bronze Tea Kettle Brunei Borneo Wealth Kettle Chinese influence This is a great old kettle or tea potIt is cast with a hinged lid and handleThere is a pin on the spout where there would have been a cover that swivelled roundThis is missingThe pins for the handles have been replaces at some time with old nails.The casting on one side of the pot must have been thin and has worn throughThis has been repaired with a braised patchThis is loose and the pot would no longer hold waterWell used, bashed and dented I gather this item was used as currency and often given as a sign of wealth as part of a woman's dowry I believe that this is from the region of Borneo ( The sultanate of Brunei )I think that this will be from the first half of the 1800's Poss brought back to Britain as a souvenir about the time the British took over Brunei in the late 1880'sYou can see a distinct Chinese influence in the shape and designIt weighs 1590 gramsIt stands just under 9 inches high with the handle up (22cms)
