Here are SEVEN very old tin shells for making tarts or pastries or other little delicacies with deeply fluted sides. They belonged to my Great Aunt May (1880 - 1955) who may have gotten them from her mother (1840 - 1926). This dates them to the Victorian Era early 1900s or the 1800s. I remember Aunt May baking with them when I was a child, but they haven't been used for probably 50 years.
Each is approximately3-1/4 inches across the top and 1-3/4 inches across the bottom. None are perfectly round any more.
Each one is charmingly different than all the others: over many years, the surface color has aged and developed a soft, appealing patina that only old tin can offer.
The only issue is that some have some small spots of very lightest surface rust. There are NO holes, splits or other damage.
We hate to part with them, but we can't keep everything ! They would be absolute stars in a collection of antique kitchenware.
