It could use a cleaning it has some scuffs and some irregularities. Considering its age, it's in superb condition.Please see the photos and measurements, as they are part of the description. This no nsense businessman is not one to crow about how long he has been influential in the American cookware industry as an importer of fine French pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. Suffice it to say that if Calvin Coolidge had ever looked for a heavy-gauge copper saucepan for the White House kitchen, Mr. Lamalle would have been the man to see.
For more than half a century, Mr. Lamalle has been supplying cookware stores and professional chefs with what he considers the best utensils made in his native France.'France has always been a great country as far as cuisine is concerned, and good equipment is part of it,'' said Mr.Lamalle, a compact, dapper man who usually dresses in a gray three-piece suit and a navy blue beret set at a jaunty angle. The importing company bearing his name operates from the sixth floor of a dark, disheveled office building off Madison Square. His cramped office, piled to the rafters with wire whisks, wooden spoons, salad spinners, and baking molds, looks more like a garage sale than an international company with 3,000 clients. The only concessions to office decor are a yellowing poster of the Eiffel Tower and another displaying a well-groomed French housewife, circa 1945, marveling at a new kitchen slicer He also has a showroom at 225 Fifth Avenue.
Lamalle, who is to French copperware what Tiffany & Company is to diamonds, calls himself an' apostle of quality'' in cookware as well as all other pursuits in life. Thank you in advance for your business.
