Once again we are reminded of how frugal our ancestors were. MENDETS are used to repair this GRAY MOTTLED GRANITEWARE PAN WITH HANDLES. Included is the empty package that they Mendets came on. Mendets have been around since the 1920's, but I believe this empty package is newer than that, perhaps the 1940's or 1950's.

The pan itself is rusted and chipped, but was still good enough to mend and keep on using. I really admire the ingenuity people had. They invented and produced oodles of gadgets that really served a purpose. I bet the housewife that mended this pan never thought it would be considered chic or charming. She just knew that she would rather spend 15 cents to repair it rather than throw it out. And it may not have been easy to come up with the 15 cents, let alone the cost of a new pan. It wasn't done because it was "in style" or because it was politically correct, it was done out of necessity. Bless their hearts.

IMPERFECTIONS - This charmer has dents, rust and is lopsided. CHARMING TO A FAULT.

DIMENSIONS - 10 1/2" across including the handles. 3 1/4" deep.

I ship only within the UNITED STATES.
