Life was rugged and such innovations as the Pure Copper Funnel of the past quickly became a wildly popular item. It worked best amongst those who needed a swig or two to warm them up on those chilly nights when an extra blanket just wouldn’t do or when a cold got the best of them. Word of the existence of our Pure Copper Funnel spread like ‘whiskey over ice’ throughout the Wild West, and beyond, to unchartered territory explored by such pioneers as Lewis & Clark on their famous expeditions. Consider yourself amongst the chosen few who will know what it was like in the old fashioned days when an American-made funnel was designed to conveniently hold your favorite spirits including whiskey, rum, and scotch. Hence, it quickly became a ‘must’ for every man, and woman, in treating virtually whatever ailed him or her, for example. This one-of-a-kind, copper funnel was a staple for every trip requiring a horse & buggy and every cowboy exploring unclaimed lands. Now that you’re comfortable, allow me to guide you on this adventure as we travel back in time, metal funnel ‘in hand’…
Way back in 1819, nearly 200 years ago, Jacob Bromwell, inventor, was the only pioneer of his day known to vastly improve upon the design of these Pure Copper Funnels, the one-of-a-kind hip funnel of its day. Our Pure Copper Funnel has been known to be a reliable ‘friend’ to the sickly much like our Ohio BBQ Skewers were entrusted as a means of cooking over an open fire. Back in the olden days when our country was young and the west was being pioneered, Jacob Bromwell somehow knew his Pure Copper Funnel would come to be the ‘talk of the town’.
To really appreciate our Pure Copper Funnel is to have an understanding of its history. So, for all you history buffs out there, here goes…
Most of the available information regarding the history of funnels starts at about the 18th century. For instance, pig bellies where used where pigs were readily available, other notable mentions are varieties of hard fruits and leather hides. The Greeks, Romans, Celts, Scotts all carried some sort of ancient funnel that led to the 18th century phenomenon of elite male funnel ownership. In some ways, things have not changed much – the funnel is still a common accessory.
