    Are there any stampings on the bottom that include the word "Ruegger"? It looks like it could be from the Bazar Francais, a NYC shop that went out of business in the seventies. They were quite well known in their heyday, and you can usually find pieces on eBay.

      It's not a Mauviel, is it?

          G could be the final inspector.

          It looks nice. K will answer soon enough. He has given me, and which I have lost, the URL of the premier copper cookware collector, with a database of maker marks. Offhand only Gaillard comes to mind, buti don't know what their mark is. You could do a quick check.

            Hi, Rob:

            Not enough information to guess, but with the single-letter mark to the right of the handle, I think it's an owner's or house mark.


            PS: pinehurst got it right--it's Vin Calcut at oldcopper.org
