(Moderator Note: This was Katebug's question in her original thread:

Hello - Have a 11-3/4" Gaillard long handled copper lid with the no. 29 stamped along with the word Vineuil, in addition to some initials. Is Vineuil the location in France where this lid was mfgd?

Thanks for your help.)

Hello again .. here are a couple of photos to clarify the questions I am asking. Thanks again.
