This large copper pot with beautifully bold seams and rivets dates to the late 19th century and would've originally been been a 'wash copper' (aka copper boiler or simply copper) and would've sat over a fire for boiling washing. This style of large pot is often mis-identified as a cauldron, though really it would never have been used for culinary purposes. Regardless of it's original function, this piece now makes for a fantastic log bin or planter (and even has later drainage holes in the base for this purpose).

The copper has been polished to a warm, mid-shine and lacquered to prevent tarnishing, as a result of this is displays wonderfully oozing rustic charm.

The upper edge of the copper has a diameter of 50cm and stands 35cm high.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
