I received this a lonf time ago from parents. I'm not sure of its name or what it was used for. It has the name Brower on the inside lid. It is cooper with a wood handle, and the roosters are on enamal. Hope someone can help!

      So the painted enamel is the outside bottom of the pan? It doesn't look as if it's been put on the fire, and if you care about the artwork, I should think you wouldn't cook with the pan. Better to shine up the copper, give it a coat of clear enamel, and hang it up in the kitchen as a cheery piece of art. What to do with the lid? Ya got me. :-)

      Looks like a decorative piece not actually meant to cook with, whatever your parents may have used it for. Might be used as a serving dish, I suppose. What's in the third photo?

        Sorry I should have put measurements: The inside is only 1 inch deep,
        and inside where it sinks in is 5 inches across. The total width across with the rim is 6"

          Forgive me if I'm missing something, but it looks like a simple (very elegant) deep saute pan that, at some point, was decorated on the back,probably to make it pretty when hanging up in a kitchen. Is it bigger than it appears in the picture? It needs to be cleaned and probably tin-lined before cooking to prevent the leaching out of toxic substances in the copper.
