Flameware 7125 tea kettle, 2½ Qt.
Tea kettles debuted during late 1938, but this example cannot be that old. It has a pointy bump-up at the top of the glass handle that makes it easier to grip. This improvement did not appear until 1939, so the handles of the oldest tea kettles lack this feature. Flameware tea kettles were still offered in 1942, but their exact ending date is unclear.
Flameware handles: chrome with glass knob (top), glass handle (bottom).
In the late 1930s & early 1940s, wire handles with a glass knob were available in two different finishes, chrome-plated or black, the latter being less expensive. From 1943 to 1945 glass handles with a black metal latch were provided. The wire handles that re-appeared in 1945 are shorter and have no glass knob. They are not as shiny as the older wire handles, so they might not be chrome-plated.
Flameware 7829 coffee percolator, 9 cup. This particular type could be purchased only during 1939 & 1940. The 6 cup size that debuted in 1939 had a different handle and lid, and it remained on the market for a longer period.
Flameware 7826 coffee percolator, 6 cup. Percolators were updated with new handles and lids in 1948, this style remaining until 1950. Three sizes were available: 4 cup, 6 cup, 9 cup.
