The Cornish Hand Wrought Copper Company was founded in the 1880s in Copperhouse, Hayle, a Cornish port town with a strong engineering tradition serving the mining industry. Their products were 'entirely hand hammered'. Their inspiration came from the copper ore mined locally but supplies of rolled sheet made from refined copper mostly came from mills in Birmingham. In 1908 they were taken over by a company that had been formed by James and Frederick Pool in 1862. J & F Pool Ltd, Copperhouse, Hayle, Cornwall produced many items which were hand finished and usually unmarked.
There is a small tear in the copper on the rim but this does not effect use in any way. Some historic woodwood to legs which we have treated again. Shows lots of signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
We are a family company and love sourcing unsusal pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!
