Waterman style #3 gem pan with bottom gate. This is based on the Nathanial Waterman Patent of 1859. They were widely copied by a number of foundries and made without the Waterman name. Waterman pans are end poured/gated but this one is bottom poured so it almost certainly came from another foundry. Still it’s a gorgeous well made piece that shows how good small foundry iron could really be. Ready for use or display this gem is in excellent condition – with it’s only imperfections are very minor pouring flaws from the foundry. Underside of the cups are beautifully smootherd, while the interior is typical of gem pans that could not be stone polished on the interior. You don’t find many this nice.
Marked bottom: “3” on the underside of one handle.
12” 1/2 long x 8” 1/2, x 1” tall
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks or chips. Sits on the gates so it does wobble (as expected) when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good.
