I don’t think many people would immediately recognise this design as being a Le Creuset, but having been lucky enough to sell one of these pots before I instantly knew what I was looking at when I spotted this beast the other day! I love the handles which make the pot so easily identifiable, and which function really well – Le Creuset pots aren’t light and these handles make it that much easier to pick up. The pot forms part of a range entitled La Mama, and was designed in 1973 by the Italian modernist, Enzo Mari. And while all Le Creuset is considered collectible, pieces by Mari seem to be even more sought after with a super clean version of this pot currently selling on Etsy for £130 (R2300). Being in the region of 40 years old it’s not that surprising that there’s some wear and tear – most notably to the inside of the pot, which has lost its sheen, but it’s definitely still clean enough to use for a good many years to come!
P.S. This large pot would go nicely with the Le Creuset saucepan that we had for sale yesterday – the colours are a very good match
Dimensions: 30cm in diameter x 20cm tall (with lid on); 36cm long incl. handles
