I have one of my great grandmother's copper preserving pans - I use it as a cachepot for my aspidistra (which is a cutting from Great grandmother's plant!).
It is cast iron. The pic shows the pot after restoration and seasoning.

The pizza looks great! What an awesome deal. little jealous. I inherited a few CI pieces from my grandmother. My cousin got her wedding ring but I have to say...I think I got the better deal, she used them daily for over 60 years and now our family uses them daily also. A lot of love and memories in the CI pans and I like them better the most pans on the market. Good job cleaning them up.

Wow! Great find S&P! Don't know if you do Facebook, but there is a group there that I belong to called Cast Iron Cooking. You might be interested. You have a ready made collection and that group would love to see it and hear about it. Congrats!
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

The little mini pizzas looks so good, s&p! Still can't get over what a great find your gf stumbled upon. I look for things like that all the time, they are few and far between. Great job on restoring them!

I saw one in Cracker Barrel when I went for dinner with the grandkids Saturday night. Didn't look to see how much it was though.
