A fantastic, Victorian, English copper bain marie set, comprising bain marie and trivet, along with six bain marie pans of varying sizes. The bain marie measures 43cm. long by 34.8cm wide by 11.3cm. deep. It is marked, to the side, ‘TEMPLE & CROOK IRONMONGERS MOTCOMB ST. S.W. ‘ and it is also engraved with the initials ‘R.P.’ It has folding bronze handles to either end. The largest pan is 17cm. high by 16 diameter. It is marked ‘JONES BROS DOWN ST. W.’ and it is also nicely engraved with the initials ‘C.H’, for a previous owner. The other five pans, which range from 15cm. high by 13cm. diameter, down to 9cm. high by 8cm. diameter, are all marked ‘A & N C S L’. This is the mark of the Army and Navy Co-operative Society Ltd, which started 1871. All of the pans have mushroom shaped, brass finials to the lids and steel handles. All pieces date from c.1880. They are all well made, from a heavy gauge of copper and they all have castellated seams. There is slight pitting to the largest pan but other than this all pieces are in excellent condition and everything has been re-tinned so that it can be used. It is rare to find a set like this, of this period, which is still in such good condition and is functional as well as decorative.
We also have a double boiler was made to use with this set. It is listed, and can be purchased separately, as it is a rare item, but it does fit into the bain marie with all the other pans. It is shown in the bain marie in one of the images.
Price includes postage within the UK. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £100. Western Europe add £40.

111 Portobello Road

We started in the antique business in 1983.  At first we were were regulars on the fair circuit  and for over 20 years we have had various outlets on the Portobello Road. We now trade from Atlam at 111 Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday 10am till 4pm and Saturday 7am till 5pm.

During that 35 years our business has evolved considerably as tastes and styles change. We started out dealing in kitchenalia and early English pottery but now our stock is quite different. Being keen cooks we still love kitchenalia, but much of our stock can still be used.  One of our major lines is Antique copper kitchenware which we re-tin and turn out ready for use. Not all antique copper is good enough to make usable again so we travel thousands of miles to source copper that is both good quality and in good enough condition to re-instate to its’ former glory. Our clientele includes professional chefs, keen amateur cooks, food historians, stately homes and the entertainment industry.

We have always specialised in antique moulds, ceramic, pewter and copper, and love the history of moulded food.

If you are looking for copper purely for decorative purposes we also supply this and you don’t need to pay the premium for the usable pieces.

We have always worked with the customers on our extensive database. If there is something within our field that you are looking for, just email us and we will contact you, and try to work with you as well. An enquiry does not put you under any obligation.

We also carry a range of quality, 19th century, French crystal glass, again more for use than for collectors.

We have a passion for antiques that have lived and can live again.
