Brown and White Spatter Graniteware Enamel Drain Pan Bucket

-10% Brown and White Spatter Graniteware Enamel Drain Pan Bucket

A fabulous old granite ware drain pan, maybe more properly referred to as a shallow straining pan or bucket, as it has a wire bail. The colors are spectacular, with the base color an espresso or rich dark chocolate brown, enhanced by a spattering of creamy chocolate brown and topped with a splash of white.

Measuring a respectable size of 3-5/8 inch deep and 8-7/8 inch in diameter at the rim, it seems possible if not likely that this played some role in the canning process, the handle making it easy to lift from boiling water.

There are a few minor chips in the enameling at the rim, and one larger spot on the base edge, with a corresponding void on the inside of the corner. As you can see, the color of the enameling itself helps to hide any sign of damage, and the high gloss finish gives it a fresh look, not telling its true age which may well approach 100 years!

Although unmarked, I speculate this is a Majestic enamel graniteware bucket-style drain pan. Helen Greguire's second book shows an ad (in the brown and white section) for Majestic kitchen wares, and also lists two brown/white spatter granite ware pieces, attributing them to Majestic (with one actually marked as such). I have those two pieces from the same estate (in different listings), and this drain bucket appears to be their companion piece. Greguire explains how they were given free when you attended a demonstration and purchased a Majestic cooking range. And then, of course, for those who aren't already aware, Majestic cooking ranges were manufactured right here in St. Louis.

Companion pieces also available are listed below.
