This is a wonderful antique Spirit Kettle or Teapot by S. Sternau & Company (USA) New York. They were in business from the late 1800s until about 1920. The pot is marked on the base with their logo. T is also a mark on the burner that is a date (can't make out the month, but the numbers are 12, 1892) so this would date this piece around 1892. The spirit kettle has a wrought iron or cast iron holder (a bit of surface rust on the feet). Total height is about 14 1/4". Kettle is about 7 1/2" in diameter and about 7" tall (including handle). Has a dent on one side, and a slight indent on the base. I did not try to fix the side dent (not sure the best way to do so). Happy to answer any questions! Thanks for stoppin' by!
