Primitive Tin Cooking
Cake / Cornbread Baking
An antique tin cake or cornbread
pan. Constructed from lapped sheet iron the central part of the pan
is made from one piece that was folded and joined together to form a large
rectangle, the top is rolled over a heavy wire to reinforce and strengthen
the edge. At each corner is a tall attached leg that extends over the
top edge of the pan and also raises the pan up. The legs are riveted
to the pan, the side edges of each leg are rolled tightly leaving no sharp
edges. The center of the pan has a square shaped funnel attached at
the base of the pan with a tight folded edge on the underside. It's
seen lots of use over many years but still in real nice condition with lots
of expected oxidation (darkening) to the metal. No splits in the metal,
some light rust.
A nice early kitchen utensil to add
to your collection of Primitives!
