Where You Will Find Beautiful and Unusual Vintage Linens & Apparel and Antiques from France



This is a fabulous piece of old French copper

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've made friends here in our area of France with a scrap metal man.

Occasionally amongst the old twisted pieces of junk metal and scrap he collects, he finds treasures...and he calls us!

Recently we bought this fabulous old French copper handmade fish kettle from him along with several other pieces we will soon be adding to the shop.

The basin of the kettle or fish poacher, ('poissoniere' in French), is made of one piece of copper that has been cut, beaten and joined at the ends. There is a heavy turned lip and the handle is heavy wrought iron, cleverly attached with a riveted wrought-iron loop. These vessels were made by local artisans all over France in the 19th century and even lowly homes would have had one of these for cooking fish. The French have always taken preparing their food very seriously and they always have a dedicated utensil for virtually everything!

This old poacher is in fine antique condition with a good bit of 'verdigris' inside and just a small bit at the joins on both sides. Otherwise it is sound. We have left this poacher in the condition we found it.

I think this old copper vessel would be fabulous displayed in a traditional French kitchen on a high shelf...or as a planter filled with ferns...or.... You will have your own idea!

This item is heavy...it weighs a little over 2 kilos or around 4 1/2 lbs. It measures 19 inches long at the top, 5 1/2 inches wide, and 5 1/2 inches high.
