Very Cool piece!!
One of the oldest copper pieces I’ve found. Handle style suggest it is at least 150 years old. Dovetailed bottom (made in two pieces), smith made beaten handle that looks like copper, but could be bronze, with handmade peens. Handle has the markings “00” on it which many believe are owner marks. Very heavy piece weighing almost 3 1/2 pounds. Probably French in origin. I have not even cleaned it, but it looks like the tinning on this one is pretty good and may not need to be redone.
Marked “00” on the handle.
8” 7/8 diameter, 4” 3/8 deep, 11” 3/4 handle
Unrestored. Sold as found.
