From the same trip to France have come these unusual and interesting cooking implements. One ladle and sieve are copper and one ladle is brass. All 3 are crudely formed from the base material and all 3 bear the original years of exposure to use and their surroundings.
We have left them virtually as found, only a basic cleaning has been performed. They would polish up to their bright original coloration if you wished.
There is some crude decoration on the handles which have all but disappeared with extensive use over the years.
