My husband is so great! icon_biggrin.gif Today he came home with a new pan for me from a garage sale...but I don't know how old it is! I've never seen it before! It's a black Wilton pan...I can see the inscribing on the inside, middle of the pan and it's an 11x15x2. Like I said it's black and it has really crisp corners, not like the new ones. The pan also has these pieces of metal that are folded to the outside of the pan on the opening (top)..like a quarter of an inch...and it looks like the long sides have 2 holes in these edges for something to be screwed into it. *shrugs*

anyone know how old this thing is? (i'm sure not that old icon_razz.gif ) I'm just curious

I bet the edges are so a lid can slide onto it. I have one that is similar. They are great for brownies.

My guess is the 80's

I looked in a 1984 Wilton yearbook--not in there. My next oldest is 1989--the pan is in there under Ovencraft pans, but it's not black, and it doesn't have the holes. I'm not a fan of the black pans--cakes seem to overbake..

oooh! so, is this pan a different kind of metal then?

Thank you for looking that up! thumbs_up.gif

If you go over to the Wilton board and page a poster by the name of JeanneG, I'm positive she can tell you. She wrote a book about pans so she is an expert at this stuff.

I'm thinking the holes are used to hang the pan rather than put it in the cupboard...
The last pan I got from Wilton just about a year ago, lookssomething like that ..... mine does NOT have the holes nor is it black, but DOES have the very sharp corners, and edges.... mine is a 12" square.....
You can see it here.... looks like a Fat Dadios....
