Mess Plate (Tin)


Product Description

Great example of a mass produced tin mess pan of the mid-19th century.  Made of plated tin with bottom diameter of 6.25 inches, top diameter of 8.2 inches, and measures 2.3 inches tall.  Measurements are the same as the tin mess pan found aboard the U.S.S. Cairo when it was salvaged.  These pans will effectively hold a variety of foods and fit nicely in the haversack or knapsack.    The original can be seen in The U.S.S. Cairo, History and Artifacts of a Civil War Gunboat, by Elizabeth H. Joyner.

    Very nice tin mess plate. When compared to the one on the USS Cairo, it is hard to see any difference. Solid though the original is made of tin iron, this one is solid tin.
