 o
Age and/or origin of this tin-lined, copper cooking pan?

Got this tin-lined copper pan from a local antique/consignment store, where it was priced at only $38. I am really more interested in its age than its resale value. Here are its demensions:
-- 9.5 inches across at the rim, which has a rolled edge, making it sturdy.
-- 2 inches deep.

It appears to have been hand-hammered on both the inside and outside. Note that the hammer indents on the inside are in a spiral patten, beginning widely spaced and then becoming closer just beyond the center. Hammer marks on bottom/exterior and side/exterior are also in rings.

More photos ...

Bottom view. Note exterior hammer marks in addition to protrusions from interior hammer indents. Seems like someone took quite a bit of time making this pan. The dealer said he had seen items like this "in Turkey in the 1940s and they were old, even then."

Close-up of metal loop -- used to pull the pan from a hearth and/or cooking fire?

At an angle, so interior and exterior can be seen.
