This is such a very useful sized, small but tall french hammered copper saucepan with matching copper lid. Stamped atelier du cuivre villedieu le poeles. Also stamped made in france.It was pre owned so i'm not 100% certain if has been pre used,, so i will say very lightly used, but it comes to you in very good condition. A good sized pan with many uses, nearly as tall as it is wide, it takes up less room for smaller kitchens with limited space, or for one person or small family cooking. This lovely pan has a bronze lifting handle which is firmly secured with two large copper rivets half way down the side of the pan with an opening at the top of handle for hanging onto a hook when not in use. The lid sits recessed down inside the pan rim so that it cannot slide off so easily when transferring from hob to table. The lid also helps you control your cooking by releasing less heat/steam which also saves you from bubbling liquid scalds. It has a bronze finial handle in an acorn shape. The pan is 1.4mm thick and is in a very good condition and comes with 2 light dings in the interior base and only a few very very feint surface scratches.
The pan lining has just started to dull very slightly in places near the top rim which is totally normal as all tin linings will eventually darken, used or not used there are two minute dings on the interior base. The lid still has a shiny interior. The pan has a lovely flat base, ideal for even cooking.
It would sit so well into any kitchen style. The perfect sized pan to warm up sauces or boil smaller vegetable's. Pan internal diameter - 6 / 15.2cm. Length including handle - 11.45 / 29cm. Height of pan - 4.75 / 12cm.
Weight - 2.67lbs / 1.21kgs. This item is made of copper and iron.
