Fun & functional retro kitchenware is this vintage Le Creuset #20 enamel on cast iron saucepan with matching lid. Wood handle is original and is imprinted with the Le Creuset insignia. This heavy-duty saucepan has a pour spout for easy sauce distribution. Features a hard to find discontinued "racing green" outer enamel finish and creamy eggshell ceramic interior.
Hefty, pan and lid weigh in at 6.5 pounds and measures nearly 8 inches in diameter across the opening. Pan stands 3¼" tall.
Underside of lid reads, "20 - 192 - D2 - 2LS - FRANCE". Bottom of pot says "Le Creuset Made in France 20". The model 20 signifies the diameter (20 centimetres = 8 inches). This saucepan has a capacity of 2.5 litres (2.75 qts). The concentric 3 ring logo design found on the metal lid and the plastic lid handle dates it to no earlier than 1970 which is the year Le Creuset began using this company logo.
Condition: In impeccable used vintage condition; very little wear to the inner enamel finish. Underside of wood handle has a small area of charring (refer to photos). As commonly found, some of the clearcoat to the lid's green finish has eroded.
