Early French Dovetailed Copper Saucepan
A nice heavy weight copper pan. Note the hand dovetails, a sign of early copper ware. Recently relining by hand brought it to excellent condition. The pan extends 19″ with handle.
We love antique copper pans and use them exclusively in our home. Copper conducts heat quickly and evenly with no hot spots on the bottom of the pan, allowing for greater control because the pans heat up faster, then cool down faster when taken from the heat. Copper pots are the prize of a chef’s kitchen.
The content of copper in antique copper ware is far greater than that of contemporary copper ware.
