Literature. Silver Tea Kettles date from Queen Anne times  and were used for keeping hot water to replenish the teapot.  They were made until the 1770's when the tea urn took over the job of providing hot water. Although kettles were still made between 1770 and 1840 they were less common until Victorian times when they were reintroduced, probably because of the discovery of odourless spirit for the burners.
