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
covers 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 so
far over 200 pages and asks for helpful comments.
