Designed for long, slow cooking over the coals of a domestic fireplace the daubière consists of two parts: an oval base raised on three “feet” and a lid with a crenelated border designed to accommodate hot coals, thus assuring an even distribution of heat. The lid has a large rectangular grip and is impressed with the letters HDF. Provenance: France / late 1700s.
Given its age and the time it must have spent over hot coals, this vessel is well-preserved. There is just one small hole and dent to the lid near the base at back center. Provenance: France / Late 1700s.

Length 28 cm – Width 22 cm - Height 26 cm (with handle).

By Appointment


Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
