I’ve been corresponding with reader Andrew about a double boiler he picked up.
The bottom part is without any handles and has this stamp:
The Revere Copper & Brass Incorporated name was used in the late 1920’s to the late 1930’s I believe. The top part says made in Korea.
Revere did at some point make double boilers that looked a lot like this, but the bottom had long and short handles on opposite sides. My best guess here is that the bottom is a vintage storage container and the top is from the 1980’s or so, and they just happen to fit together. The lid, who knows; it has a Phillips head screw holding the small knob on, which puts it as a more modern lid.
Can anyone shed any light on this apparent Frankenpot?
