Our first entry will be some early brass spoons, made to scale from lightweight kettle scrap brass. I followed the hammer marks on the originals also, to see how they worked, and it went well. These come from Mass., and are really light weight, but work fine. The two smaller ones are $20 each, the larger one $25.
 The copper pipes come from an original found at Crown Point,and are copper sheet, soldered,  $40.00
All are reproductions, probably 17 th century.
