Here is an very unusual piece of early French copper cookware. It has a dovetailed (cramp seam) bottom and side. Dates from late 1700s to early 1800s. It is unlined and was most likely used to cook sugar for caramel or for making jams and jellies. Very heavy, weighing nearly 6 lbs. Top has a thick rolled rim. There is a heavy iron hand wrought handle attached, unusually, on the inside of the pot, by three hefty copper rivets. Hand-hammered of course. When I bought this, the inside was covered with a thick burnt on layer (sugar?). Most has been removed but the pot would benefit from a bit more polishing.

Measures:
8 1/2” tall.
8 ½” top diameter.
6 3/4” bottom diameter.
10” Length of handle.
