An old kettle handle from gold?


Recommended Posts

I have found an old kettle recently, and I think the handle contains gold in it or at least mixed with some other metals mainly copper and brass. I tested it with acid and some parts changed color to  red copper and some other part remains the same and still have that goldish color. I need your opinion about this images

I guess there is always a possibility for gold to be in the mix but, it doesn't make any sense to me at least that someone would include precious metal in making a copper/brass kettle.  Only thing I can think of would be if someone was trying to hide the gold in that fashion.
