This Swans Down Cake Flour Pan is all tin with a beautiful patina appropriate for it's age. Marked with patent pending. This is a great advertising piece.
It has 3 1/2 inch straight sides with a rolled seam top and bottom attached to the flat bottom which is boldly embossed with "SWANS DOWN CAKE FLOUR, MAKES BETTER CAKES". The bottom has an 8 1/2 inch diameter. In the center is attached a 4 inch high, 1 1/2 inch diameter chimney to allow heat distribution for more even baking. On opposite sides of the cake tin are extra handled metal pieces which lift to reveal 1/8 inch slots cut into the cake pan sides to allow ventilation for the baked cake. On the movable metal pieces are embossed "SWANS DOWN CAKE PAN PAT. PENDING. E. KATZINGER CO, CHICAGO, LICENSED MFRS." No bends or cracks. Wonderful piece. Vents still lift.
