What does this mean?

Hi Rhonda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The protruding pins would have sat on a kettle stand, which this would have originally come with.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A Victorian cast and engraved brass hot water kettle
Probably English or European, mid/late 19th Century
With single hinged scrolled handle over a domed cover, the body with engraved sides and protruding stand pins, serpentine spout. Apparently unmarked.
11 inches overall height, 8 3/4 inches width across spout
CONDITION: lacking original stand but appears to be in good condition, with minor pitting and use wear
PROVENANCE: acquired at an estate sale
$100-150*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
