Vintage Copper English Box, Mid 19th Century
Good things come in small boxes.
We found just the thing for stashing those extra-special treasures: this pint-sized box that’s a treasure in its own right. It’s vintage copper, crafted in England back in the mid-19th century (there’s even a “made in England” stamp on the bottom). It’s got hand-patterned edging, too, along with a hand-cut fluted lid and silver interior. Up front, you’ll find the engraved initials “RTO”—a subtle hint at this find’s original owner.
Vintage copper—is there a dreamier sight? Whether it’s a gleaming tea kettle or a well-worn (but well-loved!) baking dish, copper lends easy, warm elegance to a home, without all the stuffiness. We’ve brought you an assortment of stunning, one-of-a-kind finds from Coppermill Kitchen to add to your collection, exclusive to our Shop (you won't find them anywhere else!).
