Hand Wrought Copper Cooking Pot 2.5mm Thick 5.3kg

FRENCH VINTAGE LINENS AND ANTIQUES
Large and Very Heavy Vintage French Pot in Copper

This is a fine old French Professional quality copper cooking pot with a heavy cast iron handle.

This copper pot has been artisanally formed by beating a sheet of copper into this pot shape with no seam. The marks of the makers hammer can be seen in the photos. This pot has the impressed number '26'.


This cooking pot with sides of the desired 2.5 mm thickness, measures approx. 10 1/4 inches in diameter by 6 inches deep. It is 20 inches long with the handle. It is super heavy weighing about 5.3 kilos. Even with the wrought iron handle that's a lot of copper! If this pot were to be used, the tin lining would need to be renewed, (see our recommended source below), or it is just wonderful decor for a French-style home or professional kitchen.

This pot is in excellent vintage condition with no dents or verdigris. Although it appear to have been give a light polish not too long ago, it would enjoy a refreshing polish to shine beautifully and to remove any residual tarnish.

FRENCH VINTAGE LINENS AND ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Pezenas
France
France

For a number of years now, we have had a business selling fine French vintage and antique linens, and a selected group of other vintage and antique items worldwide and please do let us know if you have any specific requests. We have a large stock of beautiful things and we enjoy the challenge of finding just what you are looking for.

 

To introduce ourselves, we are a husband and wife team, he's Irish and I'm American, who live in France in the charming and historic town in the South of France called Pezenas.

For us it is particularly special in that there is a street filled with over 20 antique shops just blocks from our house!

 

We travel often on weekends during the spring and summer to flea markets, 'brocantes' and antiques fairs all over the south of France, searching for the linens and the other items we sell.

When at home we enjoy our family--especially our children and our 3 adorable English grandchildren-- when they can visit us, or we can visit them in England.

My son comes to visit us once a year from America.

 

While my husband does all the 'admin' work for our business, I do lots of washing and ironing of the vintage linens we sell which strangely I can say I really enjoy!

I'd love to find more time to paint, knit and sew--and maybe that will happen!

 

All in all, we love our life here in France and the work we do to bring these fine old linens and antiques to our customers around the world.

 

Again thank you so much for visiting us...and do come back often...we are always adding 'new' old things...and we love making new friends!
