The earliest known reference to a silver tea kettle is from 1687, however the earliest known example is from a few years later, hallmarked in 1694, and is currently in the collection of the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery. The tea kettle fell out of fashion during the 1760’s as it was replaced on the table by the tea urn, however rare examples of this age can still be found. During the Victorian period, and with the huge rise in the amount of tea available in the UK, the tea kettle became once again a popular tea time item, and it is still as popular today.
