Copral Copper Tea Kettle | Vintage Cookware Made In Portugal On Ebay | American Pickers

Updated on March 19, 2013

Copral Copper Tea Kettle

As a full time picker and treasure hunter, I come across a variety of vintage copper cookware. I have trivets, pots, and pans. Today we will be talking about a Kettle. I recently acquired a Copral Copper Tea Kettle made in Portugal. I'm not entirely sure how old it is but I would guess out of the 70's. They are highly collectible due to their overall presence in a kitchen. If you plan to use it, i would make sure the inside is tinned, as copper is toxic if directly in contact with food!

I came across one at a local thrift shop for a bargain price of only $3. It is in great shape but does have a few dings and some damage to the wooden handle unfortunately. Even in this condition I expect to get at least $40 for it. If you are planning on buying once, make sure you look closely for imperfections, as they are common due to copper being so soft and the wooden handle being so fragile. If you plan to sell one, be sure to include every imperfection!

Copper Kettles can be found on Ebay fairly easily and if you are patient, you can get them at a cheap price. Ebay really is the best place to go if you are looking for vintage stuff though. The best part is that most sellers are complete amateurs who are just cleaning out their house. This means great deals for patient buyers! I am always on the lookout for copper kettles. They sell well, and if for some reason you can't sell it, you have a beautiful piece of art in your home! Do you have any copper cookware in your house?
