    What is Thekla?
  2. mpower, 10 months ago
    thats what on the bottom part , and says Made in West Germany
  3. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    Is that a wood knob?
    Does the spout come off to get water in?
  4. mpower, 10 months ago
    yes to both
  5. mpower, 10 months ago
    do you know anything about it?
  6. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    All I found was an image of another one.
    I found Thekla on the German Map, but would have been in East Germany, so that's a dead end.

    wierd says west on it
  8. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    Thekla, Germany is named after Thecla a saint of the early Christian Church.
    Is it possible the company was named after that saint, or the company was named after the East German town.

    i cant find anymore things written on it except something under the name which says reiner kupferboden
  10. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    rein translates to pure
    kupferboden translates to copper bottom
  11. mpower, 10 months ago
    but you wouldnt have a clue around what era or years this is?
  12. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    Right after WWII possibly, there would have been an abundance of copper & brass available.
