Antique Copper Saucepan with Lid
Catalog No: A0543
Purchase from a Midland's manor house, this is one of the finest quality saucepans we've found.
Heavy with no need to be relined. Manufactured by a Swiss immigrant to England in the mid 19th century, his company is still in business. The lid was replaced after WWII by the same maker (all metal lids were surrendered for munitions for WWII). Note the faceted finishing detail along the top of the pot's rim. We love antique copper pans and use them exclusively in our home. Copper conducts heat quickly and evenly with no hot spots on the bottom of the pan, allowing for greater control because the pans heat up faster, then cool down faster when taken from the heat. Copper pots are the prize of a chef's kitchen.
