Vintage Copper French Strainer, Late 19th Century
The most handsome utensil around.
So you're going to sit down and eat: Do you want regular spoons or copper ones? We thought so. Not only are these utensils brilliant and beautiful, they're cleverly designed. The fork doubles as a spoon and the spoon has a smaller spoon on the opposite end (and you can use it as a measuring spoon: There's a teaspoon on one end and tablespoon on the other). Made around 1860, these hand-cut utensils are each crafted from a single piece of heavy gauge copper.
The double-sided spoon is also stamped with its maker's mark, "Benham & Sons.
