Alessi Anna Corkscrew
Made of stainless steel 18/10, the Tea Rex kettle has a fascinating reptile whistle: between prehistory, mythology and the future, a kind of fantastic dragon, designed by Michael Graves as an omen for those who put it in their kitchen. Tea Rex kettle was created in 2015 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famous 9093. Michael Graves redesigned the whistle of that first famous kettle, transforming its shape: the little bird has become at the same time a fascinating mythological and futuristic creature, a kind of imaginary dragon. The choice of the dragon is Graves's reference to Chinese culture which has chosen these creatures as symbols of strength and fortune. Compatible with Induction hobs. Available in Black & Light Blue. Boxed. Material: 18/10 stainless steel with handle, black and prehistoric reptilian whistle, copper metallic finish, in PA. Magnetic steel bottom.
