19th Century Hand-Made Copper Pot represents centuries of traditions handed down from generation to generation!  Solid copper was formed into the inverted bell shape then dovetail joints were  hand-soldered to create a waterproof seal.  Then handles were fashioned and riveted to the sides.  Lastly, a coating of tin was applied on the interior as tin was the best option to create a non-reactive surface for the foods cooked and mixed in the bowl.  Until tin became too expensive, it was later used to make cans for the food industry that burgeoned during the Industrial Revolution.
Circa 1880s
