French Copper Cauldron with Forged Iron Handle, 19th Century

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A fabulous 19th century French copper cauldron with repousse decoration and iron handle. This round pot likely spent much of its life hanging in a fireplace by its sturdy forged iron handle. The copper has a wonderful, bright patina on the outside and a rich, dark patina inside. A large band of stylized foliate motif repousse spans the top half of the cauldron, with a zigzag design below. Incised lines augment the repousse work. Stippled texture is impressed between the decoration. The raised edges that house the handle carry the same decorative embellishments. Three striking rustic patches are placed around the bottom rim of the pot. They are just beautiful in their wide toothed, hammered execution, and only give the cauldron more life.
