Mystery copper bowls

Customer Lois contacted us looking for information about these beautiful Revere Ware copper bowls.

My family was stationed at Griffiss AFB, Rome, NY 1962-1966. Given that I believe my mother may have bought them then, but do not know for sure.  There are six of them. Weigh about 9.5 oz ea. Six inch diameter. One and a half inches high. Someone in the past scratched the inside surface of one of them to prove they were solid copper. The red interior finish could be lacquered?


I’ve never seen anything like them and we were unable to find any historical information about them.

If you have any information about what line these belonged to, when they were produced, what the red finish on the inside might be, or anything else regarding these bowls, please contact us.

    I have three just like it. One is red inside, another yellow and the third is black. I think the inside material is enamel, rather than laquer. I got them in a carboot sale I think. I love them and keep looking out for more.

    I have the same bowls and wonder if they are worth anything.

      Items like this that don’t have a lot of history of sales on marketplaces like eBay are hard to value. My guess is that to the right person, perhaps they are worth $100-$200 or so.
