Do you know which French maker used these distinctive brass handles?
I’ve been seeing them on different pieces of copper — all antique era, with dovetails and other signs of hand-make. The problem is, none of the pieces I’ve seen are stamped with a maker’s mark.
Here’s an example from a stockpot.
I also have them on my two mystery stewpots:
They’re also on this daubière. (If it matters, I think these handles are copper, or at the very least a very coppery brass.)
My online sleuthing has found additional examples of this handle type but none that is stamped with a maker’s mark. Have you ever seen this distinctive brass handle on a stamped pot? If so, please add a comment!
