An unusual, French copper stockpot with a folding copper handle. This would have been made for use over an open fire and could be hung on a tripod. It is well made, from a heavy gauge of copper, and it has castellated seams around the base and up the side. There is a flat strap handle to the lid and the swing handle is attached by substantial brass fittings. It dates from c.1860 and is in very good condition with just a little marking to the copper from use. The interior has been re-tinned so that it can be used.
Dimensions: Height 27.4cm. Diameter 19.3cm. Width 24.5cm.
