Okay so this is not the copper kettle from that song but still a very good example of a typical stove top copper kettle with a whistle bird on the spout and an embossed art deco pattern on the body.

Cash Register

1930s National Cash Register, bronze & oak. The design is by Tiffany. And it's very very heavy. The weight was intentional, to make it difficult for thieves to make off with it. This works for periods from 1930s right through to the sixties.

Red Gasoline Can

1930s Red Gasoline Can

Did we mention it was red? Just a great color. This can would be suitable for any period from the 1920s right through to the fifties.
