When my father founded Old Dutch in 1950, it was a much simple time. His first warehouse was a corner of my grandmother"s New York City kitchen. My dad and his uncle traveled the highways and back roads of the Mid-Atlantic states and New England in their Nash Rambler selling and delivering their kitchen and gift wares to the hardware, gift and department stores of the time (and charming the ladies, so I was told).
Over the next fifty years, my father broadened the product line and Old Dutch International, Ltd. eventually became the largest wholesaler of copper kitchenware, decorative accessories and wall decor in the U.S. Excellence, uniqueness and value were just a few of the qualities my father emphasized, and the company always took great pride in serving its customers.
It's been 15 years since my father passed away in 2000, and I am proud to carry on the traditions and values he established. During this time we've expanded our product line to include more categories, materials and finishes and currently offer hundreds of products for you and your customers to enjoy. We've also remained true to our roots by remaining one of the largest distributors of artisan-made copper products in the country.
Within our website you will find our product selection, and we couldn't be more excited and proud to make this varied collection of outstanding items available to you. From our expanded line of best-selling Moscow Mule Mugs to the many new items we've added throughout our various product lines, Old Dutch offers attractive, functional items to meet your needs.
