French copper stockpot by Gaillard


Code: F18819

A small, 19th century, French copper stockpot and cover. Both the lid and the side of the pan are marked ‘GAILLARD PARIS 81 FAUBS ST DENIS’ and this mark, along with the method of construction of the pot, date it to c.1880. It is well made, from quite a heavy gauge of copper, and it has castellated seams around the base and up the side. The base is not totally flat so it would only be suitable for use on gas. It has nicely shaped brass handles to the side of the pot and also to the lid. The pan is also stamped with the number ’20’ which relates to the diameter of the pan in centimetres. It is in very good condition and the interior has been re-tinned so that it can be used.
The stockpot measures 20cm. high by 20cm. diameter. Overall, including the handles, it is 21.5cm. high and 29cm. wide.
Price includes postage within the U.K.  Shipping to the U.S.A. add £30. Western Europe add £10.
