This small antique copper sauce pan, known as "saucière" in french, was made in france in the 19th century. This is a really cute pan that we would hang in a country chic kitchen as decorative copper cookware. The size of the pan or pot suggests this was used to make sauces. Copper being the best heat conductor, sauces could be made to perfection as the pan would become hot in a matter of seconds and the heat would decrease just as fast once the pan was taken out of the fire.
This is a piece destined for a rustic or chic country kitchen. What makes this piece unique (assembly, condition). We have polished the exterior so it really radiates in the light and accentuates the hammering marks where the copper was tapped into shape. If you wanted to use it today, all you'd need to do is have the interior re-tinned. It is a lightweight piece that we would use for decoration as it shines its beautiful copper glow.
It's in great condition for its age and besides the minor wear and tear, we've included in the photos. If you have any further questions, please ask before purchasing. Measurements: 9.5cm height / 15.5cm diameter. Weight (kg / lbs): 500g. We would also be happy to include a handwritten card detailing the item and time period upon request.
