I just bought a lovely copper flared saucepan on eBay and am looking for some help identifying the maker. The listing says it's probably Mauviel, but the seller wasn't sure. I feel quite sure it's not, and I'm thinking it's Ruffoni because the handle has a lovely leaf design where it's riveted to the pan. It's not the acorn design that Williams-Sonoma carries, but very similar (i.e., without the acorn itself). I'd post a photo, but all I can get off the eBay sight is too tiny to see, and I haven't, of course, received the pan yet - if you can still view the listing, it's at http://www.ebay.com/itm.... Ruffoni's site is less than helpful. Does anyone recognize it from the photo? Are there manufacturers of this sort of tinned copperware that also have decorative rivet plates? Or is there some website you know of that would help me pin the manufacturer down? Thanks so much in advance!
