    Those are awesome. Brass has character but copper has life.

    That copper gleam is awesome. Learning all the time. I didn’t realise that founts were made from copper. I assumed that copper would be too soft/ductile.
    Thank you for sharing, they’re a joy to look at.

    Copper founts are not all that common although all Tilley Do nut lamps are copper and some early ML tanks were as well. The Pitner Parlor lamp is an all copper tank and I seem to remember some German do nut lamps also used copper for the tanks. ::Neil::
