Brass and Copper Saucepan SP125
Original, quality, late 19th century, small brass and copper saucepan, at least this is what we think it is? for we have not seen this style before. The pan is deep and the hollow and the tapered handle has a criss cross design, a cap to the end and a triangular support bracket to the pan. The lid has a rather accentuated strap handle. The main body is in copper, tinned to both the inside and outside, the rest is all in brass and the tinning is in mint condition. I suspect this pan has not seen use and all is complete and in good order. Polished and lacquered, although the lacquer may be removed at no extra cost. Another very similar pan, the same size but in copper, may well be available reference code SP124. These were both found together. Pan body 4.5" diameter x 3.5" tall, total with handle and lid 11.5" x 6.5" tall.

Thanks to Mr Peters, we now know what this weight is, it's from the inside of a horse-drawn seed drill.
