Grasshopper Kettle

Would you know what this is without having looked at the title of the blog?


I saw this piece at last weekend's farm auction in Missouri.  It was terribly hot in the middle 90's and humid, so when the item came up for auction, I was sitting in the air-conditioned car trying not to die.  :wink:wink:

My husband had the number card and stayed back.  We never discussed this piece, but when I finally went back to the auction, my husband grabbed this and handed it to me.  I have to say, he is getting my eye for unusual primitives.  I asked him what it was and he said the auctioneer told everyone it was a grasshopper kettle.

Neat-o, if I do say so myself.  I have it listed on Etsy:
