The bad news is, you get what you pay for...Why buy an expensive copy made in the last few months when you can buy a good, old, item made responsibly, for relatively the same price. Originals are made of wood or iron, passed down from generation...
In every good chef’s kitchen you will find copper pots. This collection is an assortment of 19th century, tin-lined copper from France or Sweden. They are tin-lined because copper distorts the taste of food. After over 100 years, most copper pots are still usable (and easy to clean). If you don’t want to cook with them, they add just the right touch to every kitchen, a reminder that some things never change, or as Julia Childs says: “there’s nothing new in food unless a new type of cow were to fall out of the sky.”
Originally fair prizes, painted by children, these quaint collectibles became popular during the Victorian era of the 19th century. Especially the pooches, because of Queen Victoria’s spaniels. They were made very shallow to fit on mantels. The spaniels may be the most popular, but there are many varieties: lambs, poodles, lovers, royalty figures, and even angels.
