Vintage Copper Leon Jaeggi & Sons Splayed Pan, Late 19th Century
Wave the flag.
This pan's got a solid brass handle secured with three copper rivets; though it says HELVETIA on it (that's Latin for Switzerland), it was made in England. (For good measure, it's got both the Swiss and British flags, as well as its maker's mark, "LEON JAEGGI & SONS ltd MANUFACTORING COPPERSMITHS LONDON & STAINES.") After over 130 years, we say it doesn't really matter where it was made—it's paid its dues.
Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
