Antique  Primitive Tin Cooking Utensil

  Cake / Cornbread Baking Pan

Circa 1880



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!


11-1/2" long x 8-3/4" across - depth of pan is 2-1/2"
