D17143 A very unusual copper scoop. Marked 'W & T AVERY LTD MAKERS BIRMINGHAM' to the flat section and 'PATENT No 11413-11' to the domed cover. This is the same company that was famous for making scales. Date: c.1890. Size: 32.5cm. (12 3/4") long by 16.5cm. (6 1/2") wide at its widest part by 7.5cm. (3") high. This piece is well made, from a substantial gauge of copper, and there is a steel end to the scoop, for re-inforcement. It is in excellent condition. We are not sure of the exact purpose of the scoop. It is designed so that whatever is scooped can then, easily, be poured into a bag through the side funnel. It was sold to me as a scoop for sweets but as it has never been tinned it is unlikely to be for foodstuffs. We think that it may have been for use in a bank or post office for scooping coins, and this would also explain the re-inforced end. £115. U.S.A.

D17142 A 19th century, copper ale muller. Marked 'E V W' along with an engraved milk churn. This is the mark of Edward Villers Wilkes. This company traded in Birmingham from the early 19th century until about 1909. Date: c.1860. Size: 31cm. (12 1/4") long by 12.6cm. (5") diameter at the rim. The total width, including the handle is 20.3cm. (8"). This piece is well made, from a substantial gauge of copper. It has a hollow handle, with simple fittings, and it has a castellated seam up the side. There are a couple of very small dents but other than that it is in very good condition. The tinning, to the interior, is worn. It would have been used for warming ale over a fire. £82. U.S.A.

D17133 An early 19th century copper ale jug. Unmarked. Date: c.1820. Size: 21.5cm. (8 1/2") high by 16cm. (6 1/4") diameter at the base. The total width, from the outer edge of the handle to the tip of the spout, is 24.8cm. (9 3/4"). This jug is a simple baluster shape. This shape was popular in pottery of this period as well as metalware. The jug is made from a substantial gauge of copper and has a castellated seam. However, whereas, usually the seam would run up the side of the jug under the handle, with this jug it runs down the side, halfway between the handle and the spout. This gives extra character to the piece. It has been well used and does have a few small faults. There is denting to the handle and there are some small splits in the wired rim. £195. U.S.A.

D17122 A Georgian copper coffeepot. Unmarked. Date: c.1810. Size: 26.5cm. (10 1/2") high by 13.3cm. (5 1/4") diameter at its widest part. The total width, from the outer edge of the handle to the tip of the spout, is 28.2cm. (11 1/8"). This coffeepot is a very elegant, and typical Regency, shape. It has an applied, moulded decorative band to the base and also to the rim. The handle is possibly made from fruitwood and has a dark patination. The coffeepot is made from a substantial gauge of copper and has a castellated seam up the side, under the handle. It is in excellent condition but it no longer has the net bag, to the interior, which would have held the coffee. We have not polished this piece as it has a wonderful colour and patina which has developed over two centuries. £175. U.S.A.

A large, French copper, champagne settler. Unmarked. Date: c.1860. Size: 40.5cm. (16") diameter by17.7cm. (7") at its highest point at the side of the spout. The piece has a wide pouring spout and the total width of the pan, across the spout, is 46.5cm. (18 1/4"). It is made from a fairly substantial gauge of copper and has good, castellated seams around the base and up the side.

D17021 A large copper cooking pot and cover. Unmarked. Date: c.1850. Size: The pot is 38.8cm. (15 1/4") diameter by 33.7cm. (13 1/4"). It has a simple, strap handle to the lid and and very substantial tubular copper handles to the sides. The fittings are all fairly simple in form. The total height, including the handle is 40.5cm. (16") and the total width is 48.2cm. (19"). This piece would, originally, have been made as a cooking pot as the interior has been tinned. The tinning, however, is now well worn and there has been a repair to the base, so it is now only for decorative use. It would make a very useful, and attractive coal bin. It is made from a heavy gauge of copper and has castellated seams around the base and up one side. It has some denting, from use, and, as previously mentioned, there is a repair to the rim around the base. £225. U.S.A.

D16905 A copper water can and cover. Unmarked. Date: c.1890. Size: 22cm. (8 5/8") high to the top of the can by 27.3cm. (10 3/4") diameter at the base. The total height, when the handle is in an upright position is 37cm. (14 5/8"). This shape of water can was probably made for use on trains. This one is made from a heavy gauge of copper. It has ornately shaped fittings on the handle and there is a small, brass finial on the lid. There is very minor denting, from use, and originally there would have been a hinged cover over the spout. This is now missing. Otherwise the piece is in very good condiiton and the shape is very attractive. £185. U.S.A.

It has many small dents, from use, and the tinning, to the interior, is well worn. However, it has a good, rustic appearance and would look good filled with plants. . U.S.A.

D16626 An unusual, early 19th century copper mug with a strap handle. Unmarked. Date: c.1830. Size: 14.8cm. (5 7/8") diameter by 18.2cm. (7 1/8") high. This piece is country made and it is quite an irregular shape. It is higher on one side than the other and this gives the appearance that the mug is leaning to one side. This is the way that it was made and not something that has happened since. A small split in the base has been repaired so that the mug holds water. However, it is now only for decorative use as the tinning is well worn. It would make a very attractive piece for containing flowers. There is some pitting to the copper and there is also a split in the rim of the mug. £82. U.S.A.

D16744 An unusual pair of copper and brass picture frames. Unmarked. Date: c.1915. These items were sold to us as Trench Art but we cannot be sure on this as it is a field that we are not familiar with. Size: Each frame is 22.2cm. (8 3/4") long by 17.7cm. (7") wide by 2cm. (3/4") deep. They are very well made and very heavy. The design is quite simple, but attractive. They have simple copper surrounds with a brass interior. They are both in excellent condition. £145.

C16454 An unusual French copper bidet liner. Unmarked. Date: c.1860. Size: 47cm. (18 1/2") long by 29.5cm. (11 5/8") wide by 10.5cm. (4 1/8") deep. This is a most unusual item to find made from copper. It could now make a very interesting shaped jardiniere, to take two plants, or it is just an interesting shape to hang on a wall. It is beautifully made, with castellated seams all around the base and up the side. There is also a small patch in the base were a piece of copper has been added to make up the size. This is also put in with castellated seams and can be seen in the image. The bidet liner is in very good condition. The interior was originally tinned and this is now worn. A small, copper loop has been attached to one end so that the piece can hang. £135. U.S.A.

The total width, from the outer edge of the handle to the tip of the spout is 37.5cm. (14 3/4"). Although this jug has folded seams, which is typical of the 20th century form of construction, it is well made, from a very heavy gauge of copper. It was not made for use with food as the interior has never been tinned. It would be a very impressive piece to use for a large flower display. There is a small dent in the handle and there is also slight denting to the spout. Other than this it is in very good condition. £295. U.S.A.

This piece is well made, from a very heavy gauge of copper, and it has a wired rim. It has a steel handle which is attached by copper rivets and there is also a copper loop handle. This can be used to help support the colander over a pan but it can also be used to hang the piece. The overall appearance of the piece is slightly rustic. There is an old soldered repair where the handle is fitted and there are also slight dents around the rim. Other than this it is in good condition. £195. U.S.A.
