Farmhouse look. Rustic country look with some rust spots. Most likely from the 1930's? Heavy piece. Steel or cast iron? Not the lightweight ones you usually find. In the same 100 year old house for most of that time. Art deco, mid-century modern look.
Enameled metal has been used for thousands of years in ancient Rome, Greece, and Persia for jewelry and in the decorative arts. Vitreous enamel was developed in Germany in the mid-19th century. A ground glass called frit is applied to metal and then fired at temperatures hot enough to melt glass but not the metal. Minerals added to the frit produce color. The process has been used for advertising signage, medical equipment, kitchen appliances, bathtubs, cookware, dishware, basins, and pans. The term "enamelware" refers to enameled steel or cast iron. Unbranded.
Dimensions are: 3.75 deep, 8.75 wide and 12.5 long (which includes protrusions on both sides.) I also have other enamel houseware. Cheaper if you take more.
