A large copper fish poacher with removable internal rack and iron handles fixed with three rivets. This restaurant-quality piece has a tinned interior and a lightly hammered finish. It still bears the manufacturer’s stickers on the inside of both the lid and the base indicating that it has never been used. The stamp “Made in France” confirms production after 1957 and the style of this particular stamp (with the words in three separate lines) seems to indicate fabrication in Villedieu.

Length 63 cm – Width 18 cm – Height 13 cm – Weight (with lid) 5,750 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.
