Large Brown and White Spatter Graniteware Enamel Drainer Pan

Large Brown and White Spatter Graniteware Enamel Drainer Pan

Another fabulous old piece of graniteware in a rich brown and white spatter, this piece being a large drainer pan insert, appearing to be almost identical to the drainer pan shown on page 212 of Helen Greguire's second book, in the brown and white section.

As with the drain bucket (shown below), the colors to this piece 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. (I'd encourage you to click on the photos so as to view the enlarged version.)

The depth of this drain pan is 3 inch while the rim diameter is 11-1/4 inch. There's a horizontal cutout just under the rim at one side, 3-1/2 inch long, suggesting that it may be designed to hang on a wire extension or handle, supplementing some other piece of cooking ware, or maybe to hang directly from a cooking stove.

There are a few chips in the enameling around the rim, and a couple of smaller ones on the underside, at the edge. 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). In addition to having those two pieces from the same estate (in different listings), 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.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
