Vintage French Farmhouse Copper Pitcher, Deux
1860’s Vintage France, shows age with minor dents at the base. Otherwise in excellent condition, handles intact with no cracks on the porcelain knobs. Features a brass base, brass handles & a Lion’s Head on either side of the handles.
I purchase two copper pitchers from the same French farmer who collected various items in kitchen copper. This was a working pitcher, used everyday on a farm for over a hundred years.
Some of the unique features are the Blue & White ceramic handles & how the handles are fasten to the copper. Out of all the copper I saw, these were so different, the shape & extra details in the fastenings were incomparable to other French kitchen antiquities.
