The Lighthouse Keepers Dustpan
$95.00 USD $0.00 USD
The Lighthouse Keepers dustpan was inspired by 19th century examples. Originally made in Staten Island for the United States Lighthouse Service, they were issued to lighthouses across the country.
Because of the harshness of the saltwater environment, they were durably made from solid brass to prevent corrosion and breakage.
I hand and cut and forge these in my studio from Naval brass (alloy 464) so it is lead free, and will acquire a pleasant patina, should you decide not to keep it polished. They have a satin finish, and are lightly waxed prior to shipping.
Pan measures 10 inches wide by 13 inches long, with handle.
