Fancipans From France

This is a Fancipan:
I had never heard of these pans before. But I found this one recently.
I do not think a vintage pan could BE any prettier!
"Finest Imported Ceramic Porcelain Ware"
With gorgeous green and blue birds:
Pristine, unused, with the original tag:
Nice, isn't it?
I love the colors, and I love the bird design:
I found this newspaper advertisement from 1974 on the web, so at least I  I know the approximate age of my pretty pan:
Both the lid (below) and the bottom of the pan have the original stickers still in place, as well:

"A Product of France" from General Housewares Corporation Cookware Group of Terre Haute, Indiana.
Apparently, whoever it was who owned it previously thought it was too pretty to use?
It just so happens that I might agree with them.

Wow. What a score I love it. As a matter of fact I think I'll copy that little bird and embroider it using those exact same colors. Enjoy your new find.

Glad you all enjoyed seeing it! I thought it was unusual. And Melanie - I found it at "NOT a thrift store", and, unfortunately - NOT thrift store priced, either! :) At a shop in Sonora, CA. called Funky Junk.
