The canning business was in its infancy in America back in 1873 when Charles Green Summers, 19, went into partnership with his uncle, Thomas Summers, in Jessup, MD. The family canning business, founded in 1865, moved to Baltimore in 1873, where it remained until its final move in 1923 to New Freedom, PA. Within 25 miles of the Summers' plant were the thousands of acres of rich farmland from which came the field-fresh vegetables for canning. The company was sold to Hanover foods in 1984. This gorgeous white enamel pan advertises "Superfine" "Chas. G. Summers Inc." "Pennsylvania Canned Vegetables". The pan measures 12 1/4" long, 7 3/4" wide, and 2" deep. The pan is in unused condition.
