An elegant reminder of 19th-century France, our copper and brass poissonnière fish poacher captures the essence of historical gastronomy. Its arched brass mounts, riveted delicately to the sides, encase the gracefully shaped crémaillère handle, a testament to both form and function. The visible dovetail seams at the ends evoke a sense of authenticity and age, while the sieve-like liner, featuring a beautifully curled handle, ensures that the juices drain away during the delicate art of fish poaching. Whether utilized as a functional fish poacher or displayed as a captivating addition to a collection of fine kitchen copperware, this piece seamlessly marries history with practicality, epitomizing the artistry of a bygone era.
CONDITION: Good antique condition, with light verdigris. Buildup and slight cavitations, both commensurate with age and use. The liner has a slight bend to it but can still be used functionally.
