Vintage Rome Copper Boiler Wash Tub
- Source: eBay
This copper boiler is probably from the 1920's but could be a little older. Tin lined with wood handles. Makes a great looking kindling box for next to the fireplace. It is marked ROME. Holds water if you wanted to use it as a boiler. 12 3/4" high by 12 3/4" deep by 23 1/2"wide (29" wide including handles). I like it tarnished, but could be polished to a bright glow. Note the shiny spots, my fault I was cleaning off a tarlike substance, rubbed too hard. One thing for certain, it will retarnish if left alone. Handle struts are a little rusty. As to be expected from an old workhorse piece like this t are dings, photos are pretty representative.
