The Oldcopper Website

After a lifetime of working with industrial copper and copper alloys, Vin Callcut is working on a different subject - domestic copper and brass.  It aims to cover items made mostly during the period 1851-1951, following the period covered by most of the books on   antiques that range up to about 1850.   After this date there was an increasing emphasis on quantity production of good designs.

This website shows some of the work done so far  and asks for helpful comments.
