An interesting, and very good quality, 19th century French copper casserole. This is basically the same form as many rectangular, French copper casseroles from the late 19th century but it is much shallower than usual. It does however, have the same attractive form of brass handles to either end and also to the lid. It is marked “DUVAL 2.R. MIROMESNIL” to both the casserole and the lid although the mark is slightly worn or obscured on both. This is quite a rare mark to find and is the mark of the Duval company which started in 1842 but was only at this address for a short time at the end of the 19th century from 1885 until 1897. The company was bought out by Paul Legry in 1897.
The casserole is super quality, being made from a very heavy gauge of copper and having castellated seams, and it dates from c.1890. It is in very good condition, with just slight marking to the copper, and the interior has been re-tinned so that it can be used.
Dimensions: Length of casserole 35cm. Width 20.2cm. Depth 13.2cm. Overall length including the handles 46.6cm. Overall height including the handle 17cm.
