This distinctive solid copper with brass trim 4 piece tea set is from the 1930s or earlier. It includes a tray, 3-legged teapot, creamer, and sugar. The legs are squared and tapered, the bodies are round with embossed rings around the centers. The tea pot has a gooseneck spout and decorative rattan wrappings over the bail handle. The tray measures 7-3/8 by 20-1/2 inches long across the handles (18 without the handles). It's decorated with closely spaced incised lines. The brass cream and sugar handles are angular, the teapot lid has an open half-circle finial. The tea pot is 8-1/2 inches wide from handle to spout by 6-3/8 high to the top of the lid finial (8-1/4 high to the top of the handle when raised). The creamer and sugar are 3-1/2 and 3-1/4 inches high. None of the pieces have any maker or origin marks. The tea pot lid has two small, shallow depressions or bumps near the center - these little marks often occur while cleaning. There are a few minor spots of tarnish, mostly to the tray. The tea pot interior has typical water marks, less than I'd expect for its age. There is some wear to the tin lining of the creamer (the sugar is not and never was lined). The style is somewhere between Arts and Crafts and Art Deco.
Grillby 3 Cup Swedish Copper Cook Stove Tea Kettle Pre 1930s
This 3/4 liter (just over 25 ounces or 3 cups) copper tea kettle was made in Sweden by Grillby in the 1920s or earlier. Designed to be used on old coal or wood cook stoves, it has a flange ring above the base to fit into the stove burner - the ring does not preclude use on modern stovetops. It has a hinged swing handle and a hinged copper flap cover over the spout. The tea pot is 6-3/4 inches high to the top of the raised handle, 5-1/2 high to the lid finial. Overall width is 7-1/4 inches, diameter across the base is 4-1/2 not including the stove ring. The interior is tinned and has some old water sediment and verdigris. The lid and shoulder have one or two shallow, tiny depressions or dings, nothing noticeable. The handle is marked with an ankh symbol logo: Aktiebol Grillby Metallfabrik, Grillby, 0.75 L.
This heavy covered copper cook pot is somewhat primitive in that it was designed to be used on antique wood or coal cook stoves - it has a flange ring above the base to fit into the stove burner. It's 3-3/4 inches high without the lid by 5-5/8 diameter across the rim - 11-3/4 inches long including the iron handle. It holds a little over a quart. The curled ribbon lid finial is an indication of Scandinavian origin. The tin lining is discolored and highly unlikely to be food safe by modern standards. The coloring is excellent and even and the pot has no dents, dings, or scratches.
This vintage copper tea caddy is shaped like a traditional ginger jar with a brass swing handle, fairly plain other than the decorative center seam and curled brass handle hooks at the side. The lid has a brass ring finial attached with a soldered flat copper hinge. The interior is tinned. About 5 inches high, a little over 7 inches high with handle raised. The base is 2-5/8 diameter. There are several shallow bumps or dings to the copper body, noticeable only on close inspection.
This early 1900s copper pot is shaped like a large round dipper and has a brass handle with flanges at the center that curl into a tube, probably to hold a smaller pot or utensil for double boiling. Or it may actually be a dipper. It's 5-1/2 inches diameter by 2-1/4 inches deep. The handle extends 5-1/4 inches from the rim at a slant and ends in a hook for hanging. It's marked near the rim BKBF in a circle, another mark on the other side is 1/2 in a circle. The interior is tin lined, probably not safe for modern use. Condition is very good.
This 10 inch copper tray has a modest beaded design along the raised rim with no other decoration. It comes with a single matching candlestick, 2-3/4 inches high by 2-1/4 inches diameter at the base. There's a small soldered hanging hook at the back of the tray, placed so that it doesn't interfere with laying flat on a table or other surface. The candlestick is hollow under the bell base. The some small verdigris spots at one side and a few pinpoint shallow dings which can be seen in the photos. Neither piece is marked but I'm guessing they date to the first half of the last century.

There are some minor use scuffs and scratches across the front and back panels as shown, no dents or dings. The lid has several pinpoint white paint specks which will be easy to remove, I was able remove a couple with my fingernail. Two mounting screws were found inside and will be included.
This tin-washed heavy copper rimmed tray comes from Turkey or the Middle East in the first half of the last century. It's 17-1/2 inches diameter with a nearly 1-1/2 gallery piecrust-edge crimped rim. This type of tray is often used for table tops as well as wall decoration. The center bows in just a bit. There are a few small verdigris spots and some uneven patina caused by items displayed on the tray over a long period of time. This is magnified by the camera flash in the photos - in normal light the color variations aren't as dramatic. I haven't cleaned or polished the tray but of course you may do so to obtain a brighter and more even coloration. I've shown a regular size coffee mug in the last photo to give you an idea of scale.
These hammered Arts and Crafts style copper double candle holders were made by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach, California. Each has three taper-size candle cups mounted at the top and sides of a curled copper circle, which is mounted on a crimped oval lotus leaf style base.

Art Deco Style Hammered Copper Craftsman Studios Flared Vase
This hand wrought swoop rim flared copper vase was made by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach California under their Craftsmen Inc. mark, circa late 1930s to early 1940s. The form is transitional from Arts and Crafts to Art Deco - there are aspects of both styles in the tree-bark hammer marks, the applied copper beads or bubbles around the base, and the graceful tapered shape with asymmetrical curved rim. Each side of the vase ends in a curled tube. The vase is 8 inches high by 5 wide. The finish is very good, though there is some light verdigris inside and dust around the beads at the base. The planished base platform has a little faint corrosion from water drips or spills. The vase does not leak but someone may have tried to put wet stems in the side tubes - they are not soldered at the bottom and will not hold water. The underside is marked Craftsmen Inc. Hand Made with the hammer and anvil logo and numbered 338.

I believe this small hammered, hand wrought copper plate or charger was a presentation or award to a Rotary Club wife. Until 1987, women were not allowed to be Rotarian members. The male members' wives did contribute to the organization however and came to be called Rotary Anns. The plate is 5 inches diameter. Rotary Ann is engraved along the rim, the year 1955 is engraved on the opposite rim side. I have not polished it, preferring to leave that to the buyer who may prefer the original patina.

A warty Mission style hammered copper mail box from the Arts and Crafts era circa 1910. It's designed to be mounted on the outer wall of the home, or on a post or pillar near the door.

Solid copper cowboy hats like this were very often sold in gift and souvenir shops in the American West and Southwest, particularly near Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon.

The wide rim is creased into five lobes or petals with an inward center crimp at the top of each petal. The underside has a post-war Craftsman mark with the hammer and anvil logo, Craftsmen Inc. Hand Made, 880. The bowl has a beautiful warm patina. It may have been used as a flower vase at one point, as there is minor evidence of verdigris in the bottom, a little more around the rim. There is a V-shape shallow crease about midway down the middle of one petal section - nothing recent and may have occurred in the making. In the second photo the light is hitting it just right, it's not that noticeable. Otherwise the bowl is in marvelous condition.

Annemarie Davidson (1920-2012) learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA in 1957. In California she continued her studies with Curtis Tann. Her combination of geometric and organic form in her designs culminated in her most celebrated abstract designs, her Jewel line which features pieces of glass used to create free-form organic shapes which she calls Jewels. She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart. This plate is highly unusual as it does not feature the radiating lines of many of her plates. Instead there is a speckled background of pink and white. This 5 3/4 inch plate, most likely from the 1961-1962 time period, is unusual for its color and type of jewels used. This plate features 9 oblong clear jewels around a larger rectangular jewel with rounded corners. The shape of the plate mirrors the central jewel with its rounded corners. It is very unusual to have a plain background. The use of clear glass for the jewels is highly unusual. What is interesting about this particular plate is the geometric placement of the jewels. The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined initials. Due to the very square corners of the letter D, I feel this plate is from the 1961-1964 time period. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. Excellent condition. The work of Annemarie Davidson was included in the seminal exhibit titled Painting with Fire which opened in Jan 2007 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. She was one of 30 enamelists included with a one page entry on her life and work. Her page is page 266 of the catalogue.

This heavy old copper jelly or pudding mold measures 7-1/4 inches diameter by 3-3/4 deep. It has a stacked bubble-like petal design around the sides topped by a 10-petal flower motif in the center. The warm copper coloring is lovely, even with the somewhat spotty patina at the top. There are no dings or scratches of any consequence but the tin lining is probably not considered safe for food preparation by modern day standards. The mold isn't marked but is probably of European origin from the first quarter of the last century.
I believe this copper plated metal stand with hooked arm is a banana stand for the kitchen, though it could hold and display other thing, like your watch and rings, or a special copper mold you wish to display.

It's marked World Silver on Copper in a globe logo, which means it was likely silverplated at one time. There is no trace of silver plating however, only bright, gleaming copper. There are a few minor, shallow utensil marks in the center, nothing noticeable. A beautiful piece of copper serveware for use or display.
Ornate Repousse Copper Flower Bowl By Coppercraft Guild
Simply beautiful Mid-Century solid copper bowl by Coppercraft Guild of Taunton Mass. It's shallow with a deep rim, heavily decorated with pretty repousse flowers and leaves in high relief. The bowl is 11-1/4 inches diameter by 1-3/4 deep. Lovely Art Nouveau look to the design, though the piece was made some 50 years after the Nouveau era. The bowl has a substantial weight for a CG piece, it's obviously an earlier issue. There are no dents or dings. The bowl had some bad stains inside and has been recently cleaned, It has no lacquer finish and will soon develop a darker patina if left unpolished.
This vintage hand tooled embossed copper relief picture depicts a topless woman lounging pin-up style beneath a tropical island palm tree, her flower lei tastefully arranged to suggest (but not fully show) frontal nudity. The scene is very 1940s Tropical. A seagull, clouds, water, and smaller islands with palms are in the detailed copper scene which has a flat black painted background. The artwork is signed with the artist's initials, NB. The picture is mounted in 10-3/4 by 13-3/4 wooden frame painted copper with glass (which accounts for the shadows and glare in the photos, sorry). The scene is attractive and well done. I see no flaws, wear, or damage to the picture but there is some dust between it and the glass - you may wish to take the picture apart for cleaning the glass before hanging. I can ship without the glass to save on shipping if desired, just let me know.
This antique copper crumber or sweeper trays set was made by Manning Bowman between 1910 and 1920. The trays feel quite heavy and the metal is not soft, leading me to believe the copper is plated, not solid. The larger tray has an extended ornate handle at the top, the smaller one has an attached black Bakelite handle, paneled and slightly curved. The top rims have a geometric, almost Greek Key style reticulated pattern. There are a few minor tarnish spots, mostly to the bottoms of the trays, otherwise excellent condition.
Copper And Glass Relish Serving Tray In Original Box
This Irvinware copper and glass triple relish tray set comes complete in its original box with hangtag dated 1976. The ornately embossed and engraved rectangular copper tray measures 13-3/4 by 9-1/2 inches. Three heavy pressed glass rectangular relish dishes fit inside the center well, these have ribbed sides and starburst bottoms. The glass dishes are sparkling and perfect still in their cardboard holder. The copper tray has a few spots of tarnish or corrosion as shown in the closeup photos. They aren't very noticeable, not at all when the glass inserts are in place. I'm not sure if the spots are from age and storage or previous use.
These attractive solid copper candle wall sconces were made in the 1950s by Gregorian Copper Company. The backs are crimped and shaped like arrowhead leaves with curled tips. Each has curled candle holders extend from the centers below a trio of applied leaves. The sconces are about 9 inches high by 6-1/2 inches at the widest points. For some reason there is visible soldering where the candle holder stems join at the lower center of one sconce (see picture number 3). There is no damage or finish loss though the backs are a little scuffed from hanging. Both sconces are marked in incised script Gregorian Copper 407 Hand Hammered.
This is a vintage hammered copper tray with a copper tea pot, sugar and creamer. They are all in good used condition. I do not know exactly how old this set is; I tried to find others like it, but could not. The tray is approx. 13.5 inches in diameter (not including handles). It does have several small rust spots on it. It still looks good. There are very small flowers on the handles. The tray itself is plain. The tea pot is small, approx. 4 inches tall, not including lid or handle. The sugar is 2.75 inches tall, not including the lid. And the creamer is 3.625 inches tall. Both the creamer and sugar have the same little floral accents that are on the tray. I am attaching pictures. If you have questions, please e-mail. Thanks. Lurleen

This copper kettle measures 19.5 in. diameter plus the 2 in. wood handles. Stands 16 in. tall. Weighs 16 lbs. It has definitely been used. Blackened bottom perhaps from an outdoor fire. I think this would polish up attractively. Been simply washed with soap and water. The wood handles are handcrafted, I believe. No cracks or major dents. Ship Via USPS Parcel Post insured. This kettle was probably used to cook down maple syrup, make apple butter or many other outdoor uses.
Antique copper vessel. Not sure what this was for. It resembles an oil can, but I doubt that is what it is. It is quite old; has some green patination on bottom. It is 9 inches tall x 6 inches wide. The interior looks like tin. Nice as a stand alone piece or add some trailing ivy! Age est: late 1800's. 9/12rsestcs

This solid copper oval dish or bowl isn't marked but I believe it dates to the 1940s or 1950s - it has a nice Mid Century Modern biomorphic look. It's 8-3/4 by 5 inches, standing about 1-1/2 high on four copper ball feet. The sloping sides are scalloped with a convex bubble design around the rim. There are a few light marks to the finish and small patches of lighter patina in the bottom, no doubt from something displayed in the center for many years.
This nice old early 20th Century copper jelly mold was made by Kreamer. It's 7 inches diameter by about 3-3/4 deep with embossed pillar sides and a nicely detailed arrangement of fruit in the center. Some old clear lacquer remains on the outside, easily removed with a boiling water and baking soda solution. The tin lined interior is clean and there are no dings or scratches. Marked Kreamer on the side.
This vintage copper gelatin or custard mold isn't marked and looks almost new, but I can tell by the heavier weight that it dates to the 1960s or 1970s. It's nearly 9 inches diameter by 2-1/4 deep. The fluted sides flare out and the top has a twisted rope decoration surrounding a sunburst. The inner stainless lining is clean, it does not look like the mold was used for anything except display. The copper finish could use a quick cleaning with mild detergent but no polishing is necessary and there are no scratches or damage.
This 1980s shallow round copper kitchen mold is ideal for shortbread, fairly flat and just the right depth at 1-1/4 high by 9-5/8 diameter. Embossed on the front are the words Home Sweet Home above a cottage or house framed in vines and a little heart. It was only used for display and still has the original price tag inside. The stainless or nickel lined interior is bright and shiny. The copper has a nice patina which is a little spotty above the house, easily polished if desired.
This 1980s round copper gelatin mold has a big embossed basket of fruit on the front, surrounded by bead stippling. It's 8 inches diameter by 2-1/4 deep. It's only been used for display and still has the Made In Korea label intact inside. The nickel or stainless interior lining is bright and shiny. The mold has some patina at the top near the sturdy brass triangular hanger, otherwise excellent condition.
Measuring 4 1/4 inches wide, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter. Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman. In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007. In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works. His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. This piece features pink ground with striations of gold on its front. The back is counter-enameled in robin's egg blue and is signed in white block letters H. Tischler. It is in excellent condition.
A large size, roomy copper long handled colander or strainer with shiny stainless steel interior. It measures 9 inches diameter by more than 3-1/2 deep. The brass handle extends 7-1/2 from the rim. There's a shallow, small depression ding at one side of the colander, barely noticeable, otherwise it's in excellent condition. Dates to the 1980s.
A nice, heavy, cookware quality solid copper saute pan, shallow with straight sides and long cast brass handle (it looks like a low, wide saucepan). The pan measures 7-3/8 diameter by 2-1/4 deep, the handle extends 6-1/4 inches from below the rim. The pan has a couple of tiny, shallow dings in the bottom and the tin lining is almost completely worn away. If you intend to cook in it, you'll want to have it re-lined or be careful never to cook anything acidic in the pan (tomatoes, lemon, vinegar etc.). The patina on the bottom is uneven, you may wish to polish it if you want to hang or display the pan. The twisted metal hanging ring was there when I bought the pan at an estate sale 14 years ago. It's a well-made, nice piece of cookware but I only used it for display.
This attractive escargot, poaching, or ebelskiver or abelskiver (a Danish breakfast dumpling pancake pan) is made of unlined hand wrought copper. It measures 11-1/4 diameter by 3-1/4 deep, a little over 14 inches wide across the cast brass handles. It has 7 round depressions in the bottom ostensibly for dumplings, rolls, eggs, etc. No one would use this pan for cooking of course, its modern day function is purely decorative. It has some soiling and verdigris inside and is in good condition with some light (probably purposefully applied) wear. The pan is vintage but not antique - I'd say around 40 years old, maybe less. The importers of these primitive style copper pieces often claim they're antiques, dug up by peasants who scrape off the dirt and add handles or hangers, but I'm sure most were just manufactured to look old. This pan hung in my kitchen for years and makes a great display piece. The last picture has a normal size coffee mug to give you an idea of the size.
This old copper hot water bottle was made in Germany and has a wonderful original warm brown patina. You filled it with hot water to warm your feet or the bed sheets on a cold night. It measures 11-1/2 by 8 inches by about 5 inches high. It's been well-used and has repaired seams and several dents and dings. The rubber gasket probably disintegrated from age and is no longer present, causing the brass cap to fit loosely. The cap is marked inside DBGM, which was an abbreviation for the German patent office.
This vintage 1980s copper gelatin mold has an embossed fish on the front. It measures 5-3/4 inches diameter and is about 1-1/4 deep at the sides. The inside is lined in a food-safe zinc alloy. There's a cast brass hanger at the top and a paper label inside reading Solid Copper Made In Korea . The interior needs a quick cleaning before use but it was obviously used only for display and is in good condition.
Measuring 5 inches square, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter. Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman. In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007. In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works. His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. This piece featuresa yellow background. The center has an asymmetrical array of jewels in colors of red, blue, purple, pumpkin orange, and chartreuse on a pink groiund. The sides have stripes or rays coming from the edge down into the center. The whole plate was probably striped before the pink center and jewels were applied. The back is counter-enameled in green and chocolate brown and is signed by incsing the words H. Tischler. It is in fair vintage condition. As often happens with enamel pieces with sharp corners, there is some wear to the back of the piece at the corners and 2-3 chips at the edge of the back. On the front, three of the corners have no damage and one has a slight loss of enamel. Buy it in not perfect condition and add a piece of Harlold Tischler's work to your collection.
I love the coloring of this Mid-Century hand wrought copper leaf tray or dish by Gregorian. It measures 13-1/2 long by 6 inches wide and has a curled stem handle. The tray is in excellent condition with no dings or scratches, and the lacquer coating was removed long ago, allowing the beautiful patina to develop. The embossed copper foil Gregorian label is present on the back along with a Solid Copper sticker. It has recently come to light that Gregorian was founded by a former employee of Craftsman Studios, according to the granddaughter of the last Craftsman owner. That explains why there are so many similarities in many of the companies' product lines.
Made by well-known San Francisco artist Win Ng and signed with his name and San Francisco, this beautiful 4 3/8 inch wide low bowl is a masterpiece of enamel. A Chinese American gay artist, Win Ng (1936-1991) was the subject of a recent 2005 retrospective at the Chinese Historical Society of America. Win Ng worked in enamel early on in his career. His primary work was in ceramics and fine art. He later partnered with Taylor to create the well-loved and collectible series of Animal Orgy mugs as well as high end kitcheware which carried the Taylor Ng mark. This particular bowl has a deep blue and gold flecked background onto which various sized jewels in shades of cobalt blue, pink, green and red. What is unusual is that the red and blue jewels were fired as a second layer over the first, giving the piece incredible depth. The rim and the back was left in its original copper with no counter-enameling and carries his cursive Win Ng signature as well as the letter number combination B4. The piece is signed San Francisco as well, much like the way pioneer California enamelist Jade Snow Wong signed her pieces. There are some areas on the back of enamel loss due to rubbing, but the front is in excellent condition and is a good early example of Win Ng's career. Add it to your Mid Century enamel collection today.
This lovely pierced copper footed centerpiece tray was made by Manning Bowman between 1915 and 1920. It measures about 10-1/2 inches diameter by 3 inches high. In the center is a reticulated raised gallery that will take a glass insert dish, 4-3/4 diameter. Marked under the rim Manning Quality Bowman Meriden Conn.
The first thing you need to know about this pair of 1950s solid copper double candle sconces by Gregorian Copper is that the lower candle cup and bobeche of one sconce is detached - you'll want to glue or solder it back into place. The two flower like candle holders are mounted onto crimped ovals with scrolly, curly stems. The oval backs are 5-3/4 high by 3-1/2 wide, overall height from the top of the upper candle cup is 8-1/4 inches. The backs are engraved Gregorian Copper 421, Hand Hammered.
This is another of the Coppercraft Guild butter dishes I have been listing. This one has a clear, American Prescut top, and a copper base. The lid sits on top of the base. It does not sit down inside the base. This dish is in excellent condiiton. It has never been used. I purchased several pieces of this copper ware from a lady that sold it years ago. Some of the pieces were still in their original boxes. It holds a 0.25 pound stick of butter. I am attaching pictures. If you have additional questions, please e-mail. Thanks. Lurleen I am reducing this item from $24.95 to $21.95.
Craftsman Studios Mission Arts And Crafts Copper Bookends
An excellent pair of Arts and Crafts Mission era hand wrought copper bookends by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach California. The appearance is classic Arts and Crafts, almost arch shaped with curled tips and a graceful lower inward wave, hand hammered throughout. There is a repousse motif in the center of each, evoking an insect-like figure that is almost human. The bookends are 3-3/4 inches high by just over 2-1/2 wide at the base and have brown wool felt applied to the bottoms. The patina is original - they've never been cleaned or polished and are in very good condition with no noted scratches or damage. Both are marked with the hammer and anvil logo: Craftsman Studios, Hand Made At Laguna Beach Calif.
This shiny heart shape straight-sided copper kitchen mold is typically used for shortbread (as well as for wall display of course). It's about 7-1/2 inches diameter by just over an inch deep and has a heavy cast brass heart shape hanger in the center. The mold is surprisingly heavy and thick and is lined in food-safe nickel or stainless. There are a few minor marks to the finish at the edges, only to the lacquer - not the underlying copper.
A pair of 1940s embossed and enameled 8 inch square wall plaques or pictures depicting a Chinese man and woman (or possibly boy and girl) in painted red wood frames. They are dressed in traditional Chinese clothing: loose black pants, vented traditional high-collared tunic shirt, and wide brim conical straw hat. They are carrying lanterns or jugs and are pictured in movement as if running. The backgrounds are embossed in a gridded diamond pattern and Chinese writing symbols are in a raised rectangle off to one side. Paper labels on the back of each picture read Observer Gifts, 14 South Sixth Street, Gadsden Alabama . The backing paper is chipped and darkened from age. The picture of the girl has some verdigris and discoloration at the left side near the Chinese characters - it is cleanable but you'd have to clean carefully and do the entire background. The frame to the boy plaque has a scrape to the red paint on the left side. My pictures are terrible due to lighting issues and the high gloss lacquered coating to the copper.
Very heavy duty solid antique copper foot warmer with brass screw top. Incised number on bottom: #30. No maker's marks. It is 12 long x 8 wide. Has some scratches; green patination spots; and a few dents, see pics. However, overall, it displays fine as a unique accessory piece and you could also use it too! Age est: 1920's or earlier. 1/12egau#
This 8-3/4 diameter low bowl in hammered copper is exactly like those made by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach. This one however has a paper label taped to the bottom reading Made In Laguna Beach California by Laguna Craftsmen, PO Box 10 . Laguna Beach has had a reknown artist's colony since the early 1900s, and in fact Craftsman Studios moved there to be part of it. I'm not sure if this bowl is s Craftsman piece or not however. The bowl appears to have been cleaned or polished in the not-too-distant past though it is recovering a patina. It appear that the lacquered finish was removed which should help it repatinate faster. It's 2 inches deep and in good condition, marked below the label with the stock number 115.
Antique copper pan with hand wrought iron handle. The handle has a rust tinge. This pan/bowl is 5 tall x 10.5 wide. It has a seam going down on one side and circling the bottom area. Just a neat primitive item. I like to put pine cones in these at x-mas time. 12/11brcs
This is a coppertone metal bell shaped as a cow bell. Stands 4 in. tall and the base is 3 in. x 4 in. approximately. The top has a wide handle to hold a leather strap to hang around an animals neck. Just a bit shorter than the normal cow bells I have seen.
Copper Egyptian Spinx And Pyramids Wall Charger Plate
This vintage 9-3/4 inch diameter copper wall charger plate depicts an Egyptian sphinx with the Great Pyramids in the background. The etched copper design is enhanced with a burnished deep bronze enamel finish to the background and selected details of the sphinx. The back is marked only with what appears to be the original owner's social security number, there are no other markings. A wire hanger is soldered to the back. The plate has a couple of minor dimples which are noticeable on the back but not at all at the front due to the composition of the design.
This dramatic vintage Egyptian themed copper wall charger is copper with inlaid bronze and silver. It's quite heavy, nearly 16 inches diameter with a scene of a sphinx and the Great Pyramids in the center, surrounded by a wide border of Egyptian hieroglyphic symbols outlined in silver. The plate is in very good condition but it's a vintage item and shows a little age - minor tarnish specks to the copper areas and tiny bumps or dimples to the outer rim, none of which affect the displayability of the charger. A wire hanger is soldered to the back for hanging. There are no maker's marks or signatures.
Beautiful set of 4 copper coasters from Canada. Coasters are 3 in diameter and has the Dogwood flower and Britich Columbia on the inside. Has Fantasy Copper, Made in Canada on the bottom of each coaster. All 4 are in excellent condition.
PAX is an International Program of Academic Exchange. But this paperweight says 1869-1969. Maybe its referencing the city of La Louviere, Belgium,welcoming to foreigners and so it is their commemorative! The Acaddemic Pax I know about started much later. At any rate, this is a commemorative celebrating something. This Copper Paperweight weighs 7 oz. so it will hold down some paper, and that's its main job!Shipping is $3.00 Domestic USA First Class.
Vintage copper planter. This may have gone inside a wicker type basket, not sure. But can be used as is on a windowsill as a planter for live or silk plants. Some age/wear on it. It is 12.25 long x 4.5 tall x 4.75 deep. 5/11brcs

A smaller one quart Art Deco era teapot or tea kettle in solid copper with brass base and raffia wrapped handle, made in Holland by Rembrandt. The domed body has widely spaced ringed decoration. There are no dents or dings but the raffia handle wrapping is coming loose at both ends. The inner tin lining has some light water staining.
This solid copper with brass accents tea kettle dates from the late 1800s to the turn of the last century. The body is oval shaped with a brass gooseneck spout and stationary brass handle with copper tube grip. It measures 9-1/2 inches high to the top of the handle and about that wide to the tip of the spout. The body or vessel itself is 7-1/2 by 6 by 5 inches deep. The heavy kettle has has soldered seam construction with one small soldered repair on the bottom. The interior tin lining is all but gone, so you would want to use the kettle for display only unless you have it re-lined. There are no maker's marks.
