Huge Antique French Copper Fish Poacher Maker's Stamp Original Liner France circa 1875

A huge antique French copper fish poacher with its original monogrammed liner from France circa 1875. This is a true surviving rarity from the kitchen of a chef in the nineteenth century with the maker's initials G.G.C. as well as the name Conde famous for their deluxe cooking paraphernalia. The shape of this copper pot reveals its use as a vessel in which to poach an entire and whole fish. The pot is made from a solid sheet of copper with a rolled rim at the top that forms a smooth and continuous line around the entire perimetre. At each of the rounded ends there is a large handle attached by individual copper rivets that each accommodates the grasp of an entire hand for lifting and moving the pot from the stove. The remarkable aspect of this pot is that it retains its original liner. The liner has a flat bottom with a flat handle at each end. Please use the zoom feature to see not only the initials of the maker's imprint as well as the hand made perforations in the liner. These individual holes allowed the boiling water to flow away from the fish as it was lifted out of the pot. To discover a set of poacher and liner together is quite rare. Whether this nineteenth century vessel is used again as part of a modern kitchen or used for display as part of a collection its distinctive shape and will make it an important element in any kitchen. We also love these French copper pots filled with orchids-just beautiful.
