When we were in Buenos Aires recently, I had the chance to go to a weekly street market in the San Telmo neighborhood. It was very similar to the Paris markets except people were speaking Spanish and dancing the tango.
I spotted some great antique copper at several vendors and thought you would enjoy seeing it. Unfortunately, I didn’t buy any. I didn’t want to deal with carrying it around for two more weeks, toting it home on the plane, etc.
The copper was all polished and beautiful.
Double, double toil and trouble….Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
I’m not sure what these things are unless they were used for cream. Any guesses out there?
I think this is a bed warmer. Hot coals were put in this and the heat came out of the little holes. But then again, it could be for popcorn!!!!
I love that copper lantern.
We all know what this is. By the way, I didn’t check on prices so I don’t know if these pieces were expensive or not.
The copper wasn’t all from one vendor. It was scattered throughout the market. I ooooohed and aaaaaahed a lot.
