Item Details

This is an absolutely huge Copper Pan made by Moresi Lucca in Covent Garden London, there shop was mentioned in the New York times in the 70s.

It has a crack in the handles connection to the pan as shown in the pictures, it is still able to be lifted and is solid but new owner may wish to have repaired.

'At No. 58, Moresi & Lucca, coppersmiths, mend pots and pans for some of London's finest hotels. A tiny, T‐shaped shop with the work room at the rear, it is presided over by A. (for Arego) Moresi, possibly the city's shyest coppersmith.

Mr. Moresi, whose father and grandfather were coppersmiths before him, has been with the concern since 1924. It was established in 1894, he said, adding that Mr. Lucca, his partner, had died some years back.

Dodging nimbly around piles of glistening copper pans, pink in the reflected firelight, Mr. Moresi said that he would do repairs for private customers, although frequently it costs more than the pot is worth, in his opinion.

“Copper workers are hard to get,” he said shyly, anxious to get back to work. “Young people don't want to go into it any more. I don't blame them. It's hard work.”

The weight of this pan is 10 kg - 22 pounds,

Tip of handle to rim of pan is 33" and diameter is 16"

Absolutely amazing piece.
