I’ve accidentally started collecting vintage Copco pieces. It all started about 5 years ago with a $5 red pot from the thrift store, and then 2 years later a $10 yellow casserole dish from Scott Antiques came along.

Last weekend while hitting up estate sales and a few antique stores I picked up a curious little pot for $25 and a skillet for $45. They are in perfect condition and well worth the cost.

From the looks of the label on the bottom, the little pot with the teak handle, it’s never even been used.

I love how colorful they are together, and I’m trying to locate a spot in the kitchen to have them all out on display. There isn’t much wall space for hanging a shelf or hooks so I’m thinking maybe a really high shelf above the window for cookbooks and my cast iron on the little island cart. We will see how long this easy project takes!

Copco started as a porcelain-enameled, cast iron cookware company, and has evolved into quite a different company today, but they do have a cast iron collection out with Mario Batali. These pots weigh a ton, but heat up like no other.  There are quite a few cheerful Copco pieces out there for grabs on etsy and ebay if you want to add a few to your kitchen.
