This American antique copper water dipper has been in my family since well before my 79 year old father was even born and I guarantee it is old and original, possibly dating as far back as the Oregon Trail era when my great-great grandparents emigrated to the West.
It is hand wrought (not factory made) and utilitarian with a wide, fairly shallow folded rim bowl. The handle is bent and angled, designed both to hang and to easily bring the bowl to your lips with one hand without spilling. It is somewhat primitive looking and does have some dings and bumps. My Dad remembers it being shinier as a boy so it may have been kept polished many years ago, though it hasn't been cleaned for decades at least. The bowl measures about 6-1/4" diameter by 1-1/2" deep. The handle extends 11 inches from the outside rim to the curved hook tip.
