Hand Hammered Copper Pot

Hi Kaleo - thanks for the reply.
The pot weighs about 6 lbs. (pretty light) and is 13" diameter by 6-1/8" deep. I was thinking that the way the handles were made maybe to slide a rod or piece of wood through to take it up off the fire - something to that affect. Yes, the lining appears to be in good shape - too bad the lid is missing. This piece was rescued from someone who was going to put plants in it out in the garden ... primitive yard art which is nice too. But, I think it belongs in the kitchen, don't you? Thank you so much for your response and giving me info on the clues to the age of this piece. I so much appreciate other people passing on their knowledge!

Happy New Year,
Kate

Hand Hammered Copper Pot

Hello! I am posting a picture of a copper pot and was told that it should have a lid. Any idea if this is true? Also, any idea as to the origin/circa of this pot? Is it still a good piece to use for cooking? Thanks for looking. If this isn't the right kind of question to post on Chowhound, please let me know. Thank You.

Gaillard Long Handled Lid

(Moderator Note: This was Katebug's question in her original thread:

Hello - Have a 11-3/4" Gaillard long handled copper lid with the no. 29 stamped along with the word Vineuil, in addition to some initials. Is Vineuil the location in France where this lid was mfgd?

Thanks for your help.)

Hello again .. here are a couple of photos to clarify the questions I am asking. Thanks again.

E. Dehillerin Copper Cookware

Hello Kaleo:

Thanks for the information regarding this mark and the purpose behind it. This pan was so beautiful that I had to buy it. I don't have any knowledge about copper ware, but this particular pan has been well used and like I said, it's just too organic and beautiful. Once again, thank you for your time in giving me this feedback. I will do some research.

Peace
Katebug

E. Dehillerin Copper Cookware

I just recently purchased a piece of Dehillerin cookware. It has the initial H F stamped on the side. Are these initials the copper smith who crafted the pan?
