Summary Good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes Handle and lid are working properly. Wooden holders show some sign of wear, but are functional. Kettle has several small to medium size scratches all througout its surface, some of which reveals a darker color underneath the copper's natural color. Tarnish small spots are also present throughout the surface. Theare are many small dot sized dents. There is one larger and more significant dent on the side of the kettle below the back hinge and another smaller dent next to this one. The lowest part of the kettle's sides has a more concentrated amount of small dents. The bottom has burn marks all around resulted from fire. Black smudge marks are seen around the neck resulted from tarnishing. Some rust is seen around the hinges.
