I also wrote to deHillerin in Paris for a quote on some pieces. So we shall see.
I thought the re-tinning would include polishing, but Rocky Mountain gives an additional rate for polishing ($2.50 per inch).
E Dehellerin is a retailer and not a manufacturer of copper cookware. Most people believe that Maviel currently produces Dehellerin copper cookware. They have been in business a long time. I have a piece of Dehellerin that was made in the 1870's. Since they are a retailer, I don't know of an outlet in the US. Shipping to the US is expensive.
The price quoted by Rocky Mountain for retinning includes polishing. The $2.50 you saw on the site is a price for polishing only.
Also note that Rocky Mountain measures inches as length x height. Some other tinners measure length + height + height. If you are price shopping, be sure you are comparing apples to apples.
