Anyone Know the History of Gaillard Copperware?

kaleokahu Mar 8, 2011 02:14 PM

I am an American cook who loves French copper cookware, and the best I've ever seen bears the mark "Gaillard".

Does anyone here have any information to share about the company or its wares? I assume it is no longer in business, but any information or links would still be appreciated.

Merci

    The town of Villedieu-les-Poeles in Normandy is the leading town of copper artisans in France. You might call or email the OT for this type of information...

      Maholo, Kaleokahu
      Yep, Gaillard is the best of the old tin lined stuff I've run across. I recently bought a potato steamer on eBay that bears the Gaillard marque. It is so much nicer than what Mauviel is making today. I've a few others of the old Gaillard pieces, some so abused, I don't use them for cooking, but have found other uses
      for them. Lovely!
