Vintage Copper Benham & Sons Bain Marie Saucepan, Mid 19th Century
History in a saucepan.
This heavy copper saucepan sure has a history (it's been around since about 1850, after all). Take a look at the stamps on the pan and lid, and you’ll get a glimpse at its past life: “H de W 36” is a nod to the old hotel where this beaut once whipped up sauces and soups, while the “Benham & Sons” trademark hints at its maker. This one’s finished off with a brass knob and an iron handle—all to create a pot that shines from stovetop to table.
