Need help identifying hammered copper pots with brass rooster finial and turned molded cast iron handles

roosterfinial | Feb 14, 2010 04:04 PM

I just purchased some rather unique hammered copper pots on Ebay. The largest is a
1.25" high and 8" wide with a turned cast iron handle (at first glance it appeared to be the
traditional wooden handle, but it is molded cast iron). Its lid, also hammered, has a brass rooster finial. The pots appear to be lined in tin, but they could be nickel. There are no markings on the pots, and the handles only have numbers on them. The most unusual of the set is a small pan that measures 1" high and 6" wide. I have no idea what its use might be. If anyone has any leads, I would be most grateful. The pots are heavy, but without markings I am at a loss as to whether to have them re-tinned or not...or whether I can use them. Thank you all very much for your
collective advice.
