Copper Ladle (above) 
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired. 
Although not an exact reproduction of any perticular piece, ladles of this style were very common. This is based on a 1760 original. It has a hand raised copper bowl with a pouring spout. The ladle is fitted with a hand turned wooden handle. Very pretty, with lots of uses! Dated: 1760 styled. Origin: English. Materials: copper, various woods as available. Dimensions: 2 1/2" dia bowl. 10 1/4" handle. 
Copper Ladle: $88.00


Coconut Dipper (above) 
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired.
Coconuts were imported to Europe and America in great quantities, especially in the 18th century. After the meat was used, the shell would be made into many useful items. We were quite surprised to find in our research just how common were objects made of coconut shells! Coconuts were often used by silversmiths. The deep color of the coconut was the perfect compliment to silver. Coconuts are surprisingly durable; we had the pleasure of studying an 18th c.  coconut dipper that had been used at a well - it was in perfect condition! Ours is based on that dipper, with a decorative heart shaped or acanthus leaf handle attachment in copper, and a lovely hand turned handle. Dated: 17th & 18th century. Origin: English. Materials: coconut shell, copper, various woods. 
As seen in the HBO series John Adams!
