Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition

Nice vintage original Richard Sapper Melodic Whistle kettle for Alessi, made in Italy. Inox 18/10. The kettle is in fair vintage, used condition. Stainless body is still nice and shiny but shows polish marks. The brass whistle has darkened with age but still produces that distinctive two-note melodic whistle. The black plastic handle is heat damaged at the front and back but works perfectly well, and is firmly attached. You can see the damaged areas in the pics. Still, a very unique, wonderfully designed kettle. Kettle is 8 1/2" tall including the handle, and 6 1/2" in diameter.

I've taken lots of pictures, so please consider them part of the description. Happy bidding!!

100% customer satisfaction is my goal. Please communicate with me if you have any questions or issues during or after the auction. I love to give and receive positive feedback. Once I have received payment on your item, I will post positive feedback.

Mailing rates went up the first of the year. If a shipping cost looks unreasonable, go to USPS and check the cost using the size and weight of the package. This will ship in a 11" x 9" x 10" box. The box weighs 3 lbs. 12 oz. It is being shipped from 92116. I charge only what USPS charges for shipping minus a slight break from USPS when I print my own labels at home. Occasionally the USPS automatic calculator miscalculates. If you overpay for shipping I will refund your Paypal account. Insurance is included in the handling cost.

If, after you have received your item, you have any concerns, questions or problems with the item, please contact me before placing any feedback so that I can make all parties happy. 
Good luck! And have fun bidding.
