Copper not only contributes to a warm visual impression in the room but also provides physical warmth efficiently. This makes copper ideal in bathtubs. The whole vessel is heated quickly by the hot water. Even the part above the water surface becomes hot, making the bath even more comfortable as you do not lean your back against a cold surface.
Untreated copper in wet environments will oxidize, darken, and age in a characteristic way over time. The shiny metal is soon dulled. If you want the copper tub in untreated brass to keep its shiny surface, you need to occasionally polish it with copperpolishes or citric acid. In addition to bathtubs, copper is often used to decorative items such as log holders, water cans and kerosene lamps.
Falu copper mine was once called Sweden's treasure chest. During the Swedish superpower, two thirds of Europe's total copper needs came from Falun, and the mine was Sweden's most important single source of income. In the middle of the 17th century, the mine was one of Europe's largest and copper plates from Falun, covered ceilings at castles, cathedrals and churches around the world. The metal was also used for coins and household items.
For those who can not get enough of the red-shimmering metal with its long history, we have collected a selection of beautiful products made entirely or partly in copper, see under Related Products.
