Most beautiful large professional antique french hammered copper saute pan stamped: le cuisinier. Coming from a just retired french chef. I cannot find any information on this pan stamped le cuisinier (the chef /cook) meaning is so random. I have two other large saute pans with the same stamp, but have never seen any other stamped like it before these three. It is very good quality though, it comes well used but will last many more generations to come.
The stamp shows a chefs hat/toque sitting on a rounded head shape and le cuisiniere stamped within a oblong box and neckerchief under it. These items were his very own tools of his trade and were therefore perhaps more looked after than other non owner chefs might have. You can see the swirls in the tin from hand wiping the molten hot tin. I will be listing all items very soon over many days to come.
Stock pots, roasters, saucepans, sautes, etc. Just refurbished with 99.9% food grade tin.
