Large pair of buckets made by hand with solid copper in the early part of the 1800's. They have seamed joints and soldered base with sold metal rim and has hand hammered rivets and hinges. They have been abused over their really long life. They do not hold water.

These were found in the Normandy area, the home of French copper, where many independent artisans once worked making everyday utensils for everyday people.

Now with mass manufacturing these skills are almost lost. Indeed there are only four areas in France that still make copper pans and utensils.

These are super pieces that would grace any kitchen or hearth. The patina is exceptional, ready made heirlooms

They are dented, there are scrapes and scratches, the iron handles are pitted, the bases are not sealed - they are not water tight, there are several repairs on the bases, there is verdigris. These are lovely old small buckets.

They weigh 1.37 kilos nearly 3 lb 0.5 oz

Lighting and Electrical Goods

Our lighting all works unless otherwise stated. All electrical items need to be checked by a local electrician to ensure compatibility with local electrical standards.
The bulb fittings are compatable with 240V electrical supply which covers most of the world.
See:

If you live in a country that has 110V electrical supply all you need to do to convert the lights is ask an electrician to replace the bulb holders when he is fitting the lights. All the wiring is suitable for world wide use. It's that simple!
