Does this Copper Boiler bring back any memories from your past? I know both my grandmothers owned one; they were very common in days gone by when people were using them to boil water on their wood stoves. Water to be used in their "wringer washers", the old fashioned washing machines that had two rollers above the washing machine where you ran your clothes through to extract the water. Thank goodness we have travelled through time enough to be able to avoid that work-laden lifestyle.
My husband spotted this copper boiler online on a site devoted to selling items in our local area. He knew it would be something I would like as we both love antiques and spend our vacations going through antique shops. He promptly telephoned the couple that was selling this copper boiler and at 10 p.m. that same evening he proudly presented me with it. It was certainly not to use for laundry or for a mini bathtub to bathe the children in on a Saturday night. I had my own wish for it. I spent the next day happily filling it with white Peonies, Chrysanthemums, Asters and Lillies.
