Question about somewhat old Copper Lagostina cookware

kitcho | Sep 8, 2010 06:41 PM

Hi everyone.

I recently purchased a set of Lagostina copper pots from a garage sale. This set contains 2 sauce pans, one frying pan, and a small dutch oven. "LAGOSTINA SCANDIA - Made in Norway" is stamped on the bottom of each pot/pan. The lids are copper/stainless. As far as I can tell, the pots are copper with stainless steel lining and handles. They seem to have brass rivets as well. They are heavy compared to other cookware I've used but this alone probably doesn't mean much.

All I'd like to know is how old these are (approximately) as well as how good this set is as far as cookware quality goes. To my untrained eyes it seems to be very well built. I found no information about this cookware online and I simply want to get a better idea of what I bought. This is my first cookware set, I hope I did okay.

Thanks in Advance
