The brass trade kettle I am using at present.

Found. Another Jean Simeon Chardin still life kettle.
I found another painting of a copper kettle by Jean Simeon Chardin, & tried to duplicate the image using a kettle which I have for size comparrison. But as you can see from the two images, the original is still larger in comparrison to the eggs. So still can't authenticate this type of kettle in this size for the 18th century.
