Large copper planter or log basket with original lid.
Simple lip at the rim. The rim has a straight section to it. The lid fits comfortably on the top. On both sides there is an unusual riveted attachment through which the cast iron hooped handle fits. There is also a rivetted design around the base of the copper.
Wonderful decorative patina and natural pale verdigris, stronger in certain areas. This copper has an unusually worn pale colour.
Circa 1880s, Dutch.
This is a heavy, sturdy and substantial item. There are some dents to the base of the copper. The wear is consistent with age and heavy usage.
