Tea kettles came into existence in India during colonial rule. Since, brass was the most popular metal, the tea kettles were made from brass. The tea kettles of brass are not made any more in India, hence they have an immense antique value. Keeping the original design intact now the tea kettles are normally made of ceramic, aluminium and steel. The peculiar shape of these kettles is very attractive and many people love to use it for decorating their homes, offices and restaurants.
