U.S.S. Cairo Mess Pan - HOT DIPPED TIN

(2 reviews) Write a Review
USS Cairo Hot dipped mess pan

Great example of a mass produced tin mess pan of the mid-19th century.  Made of HOT DIPPED 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.  Made in USA by R. Eckert Tinware .

    Great to have a quality reproduction of a documented pan. A real utility item that fits in a haversack.
