Mystery Solved


  1. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
    What is Thekla?
  2. mpower, 4 years ago
    thats what on the bottom part , and says Made in West Germany
  3. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
    Is that a wood knob?
    Does the spout come off to get water in?
  4. mpower, 4 years ago
    yes to both
  5. mpower, 4 years ago
    do you know anything about it?
  6. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years 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, 4 years 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, 4 years ago
    rein translates to pure
    kupferboden translates to copper bottom
  11. mpower, 4 years ago
    but you wouldnt have a clue around what era or years this is?
  12. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
    Right after WWII possibly, there would have been an abundance of copper & brass available.
