Good Sources for Extra Fort Tinned Copperware (Besides E. Dehillerin)?

Hello. I'm in the USA, but collect and use French copper cookware. The prices charged here for Falk, Borgeat and Mauviel are very high. And now tinned is very hard to find.

Does anyone know of a source in France that will sell Extra Fort wares on-line to Americans? I am especially interested in stores that might sell top-grade older marques such as Gaillard.

  1. Are you interested in Swiss brand Spring copper lined with silver?

      amrx: Yes, am not French-biased at all, just looking in France. But I've learned that I want at least 3mm thickness of Cu. Frankly, I'd rather have thick than new. So yes, worldwide. Silver would be good!; the only new silver-lined I'm aware of is Mazetti in Tuscany. Thank you in advance.

        I have two pieces dating from the 1950's. They are too valuable to use. Used at most once or twice when purchased. If you post an email address I'll send you information.

          amrx: Thank you. Photos? Thanks again.

    2. Prices have always seemed good to me at Zabars in Manhattan and they used to have a high percentage of tinned stuff.

        Thanks, Delucacheesemonger. I went to their website, and nary a copper pan to be found. I'll call them tomorrow. Thanks again.

          Zabar's copper is so crazy low priced, it doesn't surprise me that it might not be on their web site.

        1. Hello Amrx,

          I am very interested in silver lined copper cookware. As well as 3mm or thicker copper cookware. Would you send me links to to these please?
