A super pair of 19th century, French, coopered oak measures. These are not a true pair, although they do look good together, so they can be purchased separately. They both, originally, had a steel bar across the top. They could be lifted by that but also it prevented anything stacked on the top of the measure from squashing the contents, so they were possibly for measuring and storing grapes. This has been removed so that they are now more useful as large jardinieres. Both are bound with steel. One has long, elliptical fittings on the handles whereas the other has a more ornate, keyhole shaped fitting. The one with the keyhole shaped fitting also has a measure mark on the side. The top section has been obscured but the lower section is marked ’1/2 M’. The plainer example is 44.5cm. diameter by 55 cm. wide by 29 cm. high and the other is 46 cm. diameter by 54 cm. wide by 28.5cm. high. Purchased individually they are £155 for the plainer example and £175 for the marked example with the keyhole shaped fittings.

We started in the antique business in 1983.  At first we were were regulars on the fair circuit  and for over 20 years we have had various outlets on the Portobello Road. We now trade from Atlam at 111 Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday 10am till 4pm and Saturday 7am till 5pm.

During that 35 years our business has evolved considerably as tastes and styles change. We started out dealing in kitchenalia and early English pottery but now our stock is quite different. Being keen cooks we still love kitchenalia, but much of our stock can still be used.  One of our major lines is Antique copper kitchenware which we re-tin and turn out ready for use. Not all antique copper is good enough to make usable again so we travel thousands of miles to source copper that is both good quality and in good enough condition to re-instate to its’ former glory. Our clientele includes professional chefs, keen amateur cooks, food historians, stately homes and the entertainment industry.

We have always specialised in antique moulds, ceramic, pewter and copper, and love the history of moulded food.

If you are looking for copper purely for decorative purposes we also supply this and you don’t need to pay the premium for the usable pieces.

We have always worked with the customers on our extensive database. If there is something within our field that you are looking for, just email us and we will contact you, and try to work with you as well. An enquiry does not put you under any obligation.

We also carry a range of quality, 19th century, French crystal glass, again more for use than for collectors.

We have a passion for antiques that have lived and can live again.
