Tea Kettle by Dr. Christopher Dresser


Unusually geometric in form, this extraordinarily inventive copper and brass kettle looks like a Bauhaus thesis project from 1930 but was actually created in England in 1878 by the world's first Industrial designer, proto-modernist Dr. Christopher Dresser (England, 1834 - 1904). The bottom of this prescient masterpiece is stamped with hallmark of the maker, Benham & Froud of London.
