The Oldcopper Website

After a lifetime of working with industrial copper and copper alloys, Vin Callcut now working on  domestic copper and brass.  He is covering items made mostly during the period 1851-1951.  

This follows 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 over 360 pages and asks for helpful comments.
