“I guess you’re right,” I said when she suggested I sell it to a scrap place. That’s not really why I spend hours scouring places for treasures. Something about each piece I buy is because something about it captivated me. With this piece, it was the warm luster I first caught just out of the corner of my eye. The pictures don’t come close to conveying the simple beauty of this vessel.
I was curious about what was behind the lettering, DAMASCUS. I live in the Pacific Northwest and was sure this beautiful copper milk can had traveled across an ocean. I was wrong– it has roots in Oregon state, the Damascus Creamery in Portland was once home to this lovely find. No, scrapping it for the money never crossed my mind. It’s value exceeds the sum of it’s parts, for sure ❤
