18th Century Copper Fish Poacher from France

This outstanding French copper poissoniere, or fish poacher, dates to the period of Louis XV, or middle 1700's. The handle has a raised rectangular notch at the center which was used for carrying and hanging in fireplaces for cooking. Every piece of this fish poacher has been carefully made by hand, including the rolling of the copper top and forged handle. Small finishing hammer marks can be seen throughout the piece.

CONDITION: Good antique condition. Some finger markings/prints as seen in photos.
