Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item. Vintage copper—is there a dreamier sight? Whether it’s a gleaming tea kettle or a well-worn (but well-loved!) gratin dish, copper lends easy, warm elegance to a home, without all the stuffiness. We’ve brought you an assortment of stunning, one-of-a-kind finds from Coppermill Kitchen to add to your collection (you won't find them anywhere else!), exclusive to the Food52 Shop. A bain marie is just a fancy term for water bath, and this c.1880 design is the perfect vessel for warming milk or making decadent sauces and glazes. Or just use the large keyhole to hang and display its glory. The pan is stamped on the exterior with a crown and "M*V 159,” as well as the number "14" to indicate its size.
All items from Coppermill Kitchen are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
