A hand-made cauldron with castellated seams and cast iron swing handle threaded through copper brackets at either side fixed with three copper rivets. Designed to be hung over a fire, the tight fitting lid would assure maximum moisture retention for good braising. The lid presents a top bracket fixed with two copper rivets and is threaded with a brass loop. The tin lining is worn. The slightly irregular form to the castellations and the presence of tiny dot (compass point) at the center of the base are clear indicators of artisanal production. A lovely antique piece that was well-cared for. Provenance: Haute Savoie, France.

Diameter 26 cm – Height 19 cm – Weight (with lid) 3.980 kg

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.
