Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
This is a gorgeous, French, heavy saucepan with a riveted, solid cast iron handle. Ideal for hanging above large country kitchen fireplaces or from rustic beams in converted barn kitchens, it is the ultimate farmhouse styling accessory.
It has a genuine, authentic patina from 'by-gone' times and oozes style. Utterly charming it is stamped at the side with the makers mark 'L Altier Fab. 59 Rue Chaillot, Paris.' next to the number '9'.
It would once have been copper coated, you can see the remains of the copper layer most prominently on the base, edge and rivets. It was shaped by hand, so is not smooth but has a 'hammered finish'. The maker 'beating' the hot metal to form the rounded pan. It is slightly mis-shapen, not through any damage, but simply due to its age and method of fabrication.
I have left it as I found it, as it has such great patina, it is 'aged to perfection' with a very desirable authenticity and charm.
You could, of course, still use this pan for sauces, butter and chocolate. It's still perfectly usable and won't burn the liquids easily given the weight & density of metal bottom!
It measures 9.5cms/3¾" diameter and is 9cms/ 3½" deep (18.5cms/ 7¼" long including handle)
It weighs 600gms/ 1.3lbs!
