How it works


The Cape Copper-smith provides information on those craftsmen who made the gleeming copper and brass utensils which formed such an essential part of the early Cape housewife's kitchen: the tart pans. coffee-pots, konfore, saucepans, kettles, skimmers, chamber-sticks and many other articles which have to-day become valued collector's pieces.

The materials, tools and techniques are described in detail, and illustrated with more than 180 photographs including many of the various types of copper and brass objects made at the Cape since the 17th century.

Hardback with Dustcover, with illustrated endpapers plus 160 pages. Very clean copy.
