Rare, copper double boiler


Code: F18487

A rare, 19th century, English copper double boiler. This would have originally been made for use in a bain marie. We currently have a complete bain marie, with pans, which is listed separately but is also pictured here with this. The double boiler is marked, to the base, ‘A & N C S L’  which is the mark of the Army and Navy Co-operative Society Ltd, which started 1871. The piece dates from c.1880. It is well made, from a heavy gauge of copper, and it has castellated seams. It has a mushroom shaped, brass finial to the lid and a steel handle. It measures 15cm. high by 9.2cm. diameter and the total length, including the steel handle, is 19cm. It is in excellent condition and the interior has been re-tinned so that it can be used.

Price includes postage within the UK. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £20. Western Europe add £10.
