Antique Copper Framed Aquarium

Thanks to all who have given there input on this tank, I greatly appreciate it. Mario, thanks for the name of the gentleman that might know more about it. I have googled his name and found some info about him, but can not locate his email or possibly a phone #. If someone knows how I can get in touch with him, I would appreciate it.

Joe Ferdezi from New York is the guy who was a speaker at the ACA Louisville last year, talking about "History of the hobby"
Like Jason said, he went to the extreme, and I'm sure he knows about copper framed aquarium.

So I say to her……There is plenty of stuff at the house for the baby to eat!!!! I REALLY need this fish……

I started in this hobby in the 50's and stainless steel frames were standard then. I used to see iron framed tanks pretty often, from the 40's I think. This certainly predates that, I would think the 30's. Not very many hobbyists before that. You might be interested in seeing a tank that belonged to the late George Maier, one of the founders of the Chicago Killiefish Assn. It's in the shape of a Chicago bungalow. If you look, I'm sure you can find a picture on line. I wonder who owns it now.

Interesting, I've seen some of the old metaframe tanks and such that were done with other metal but never seen a copper framed tank.
