Vintage Copper Thingies

For several weeks now I have been admiring the vintage thingies Eileen has been showing in her blog on Thursdays. The hostess is Lisa and her blog is Confessions of an Apron Queen. This week I decided to join the fun for at least some weeks.



Today I want to show you my vintage copper. The first thingie is a little brush for sweeping the crumbs from a table cloth. The brush originally came with a matching dustpan, but unfortunately it has been misplaced before I got the brush from my mother. This is almost antique, from the early years of the 20th century.

The next picture shows two cake moulds and a water scoop. They are hanging on my kitchen wall and not used any longer, because the tin layer inside is not intact. I think the wedding cake of at least one of my elder sisters was baked with these and another, bigger mould.



Here I tried to show the stamp, blogger insists on showing the picture turned this way. The year 1607 is not when the mould was made but when the company was established!



This last picture is of my biggest copper thingie, an oval tub where I keep my dry flowers. I'm not sure wheter this tub was used for washing the dishes or clothes. I like the shape very much.




If you click the picture with the apron lady, you will find other blogs showing vintage thingies.

  1. Those are very beautiful! The big one you keep your flowers in is so perfect with the colour of the flowers. It looks a bit like a jam pan.

    Copper is such a beautiful metal.
