Large French Copper Saucepan
A pot meant to be shown off. The copper handle on this early French saucepan indicates it was meant for serving at the table. Circa 1870. Large, its diameter is 7.5″. For cooking the pot will need to be relined, which we can arrange.
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.
