This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Thanks to dharden for pointing out the recolours, of the Brand Name MetalKettle, were not showing in the neighbourhood view. I should have know better than to assume Maxis would be consistent in their ways...another day, another lesson learned! I have added an extra zip file with all recolours of the fixed Brand Name MetalKettle.
