Victorian Brass Preserve/Jam Pan
Before the invention of fridges and freezers, food had to be preserved in different ways, so as to make the most of the harvest each year. One method would be to turn excess fruit and vegetables into preserves and bottle them. For this you would need a heavy-bottomed pan to prevent the food from burning.
This is a heavy brass jam pan with a cast iron handle. These would be a part of most households during the 19th century, a useful tool in the preservation of an excess harvest.
In good condition.
