- Antique : 1960’s – 1970’s (estimated)
- Details: These are wonderful looking porringers! These are beautiful hammered copper with a pretty brass handle and scalloped edge. Both retain their original glass inserts which make them very useful. These little dishes were a traditional baby christening gift, today people not only collect them, but they are used as decor, also as coasters, to collect loose change, under-plates for small pots, to serve nuts, olives and other small food items, we’re sure you can think of more. They are both in very good vintage condition with wonderful patina, there is some wear, but mainly on the back. Neither has been cleaned nor polished to preserve its vintage condition for those who love the patina of old things. These were made by CopperCraft Guild but their original label is long gone. A wonderful addition to your decor. Great unique item for a vintage CopperCraft collector.

CopperCraft Guild was founded in 1949 and sold their copper wares at home parties, just like Tupperware, Mary Kay, Avon and many others at the time. Their wares were known for superior craftmanship, quality and design. The shine on these pieces lasted for years as they used a special coating to prevent tarnishing. There is a lot of confusion online regarding the years this company was in operation but we believe the information provided by coppercraftguild.com is the most accurate. It describes the company as being founded in 1949, celebrating their 30 years in business in 1979 and having been a division of West Bend (1970), then a subsidiary of Dart Industries (named Syrocco prior to 1965), in the mid to late 1970’s. The company closed their doors in the 1980’s.
