    I’ve not yet found any historical reference to the manufacturer, but most probably it was made in the UK, 1930’s is my guess.

    A hinged lid on a kettle is a real asset, especially when it props open, by clipping easily and securely on the underside of the handle on this example. No dropping the lid, or having to hold it in one hand when holding the kettle in the other hand to fill it.

    The base has the gleaming black patina well-used Trangia pots acquire, not sooty and won’t rub off.
