“The Bear and the Tea-Kettle – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “A woman in Kamtschatka left the outer gate of her home open, and a hungry bear got in. A kettle, full of boiling water, stood in the court. Bruin smelt at it, but it burnt his nose. Provoked at the pain, ne grew very angry with the kettle, and tried to crush it by pressing it against his breast; but this, of course, only burnt him more. His terrible growling now brought a few neighbours to the spot, and poor Bruin by a few shots was put out of his misery.”
