This is a reproduction of an incredibly common item in the 19th century, the tin pan. Ours is a copy of the pan that was salvaged from the U.S.S. Cairo wreck. We had the die made specifically to reproduce this plate, and are excited to be offering it at such a great price. Our plate is made from tin and is pressed out to the exact size of the plate recovered from the Cairo wreck.
These are approx. 1 1/4 deep and 6 11/16 diameter across the bottom.
