Prior to the launch of Four & Twenty Antique Copper, Ginger Tuttle was a curator at a major art museum. The work sometimes involved travel to Europe, and it was there that she first discovered antique copper cookware. In her spare time she was able to wander through cities, markets, and shops in pursuit of her new-found passion: antique copper cookware. Ginger fell in love with the history, lore and uses of antique copper. Soon her small house was filled with fine examples from Great Britain and France. Motivated by the astonishing beauty of these pieces, Ginger began to study antique copper with the same intensity and interest that she had previously devoted to the study of fine art. She recognized that understanding this magnificent copper would require knowledge of the history of cuisine, technology, and social change, as well as the traditional methods of hand-working copper.
