Nice set of medium/large sized copper saucepans from french producers of copper pans tournus. 1mm thick solid copper body which has been machined and solid iron handles fixed with thick rivets. The iron handles have some very mild surface rust which has been oiled to prevent it worsening. Internally they are electro-plated with tin which is bright. Only the slightest specs and tarnishing just from storage.
The outsides of the copper still has the factory protective wax/lacquer coating which means they won't tarnish. If you wish to remove this coating you can use acetone nail varnish remover and then polish the copper which will be bright and shiny. Minimal scratches, just from storage. These are quite heavy, the copper does have some flex in the sides - they are not completely rigid and they have a lovely feel to them.They appear not to have been used, there is very little wear and the bottoms are beautifully smooth with just some very light marks, slightly more scratches on the base of the largest pan just where they have been stored. They are extremely clean and would be perfect for use or decoration. Diameter 12.2cm or 4 3/4 inches. Diameter 14.2cm or 5 1/2 inches.
Diameter 16.2cm or 6 3/8 inches. The set weighs 1.7kg or 3.6lbs. The thickness of the copper seems to vary from 1mm to 1.2mm.
