Vintage Copper American Fish Poacher & Braiser, Late 19th Century
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.
This piece features a thick-rolled rim, heavy hand-forged handles secured with large copper rivets, and dovetailed seams down one side and around the bottom. It even still bears its original baking rack from way back when—i.e., the 19th century—as well as a maker's stamp ("L.F.D&H NY 24&26 WOOSTER ST").
All items from Coppermill Kitchen are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item.
