Antique L&G Agateware Oval Lunch Pail ... Rare and Pristine!
Price: $88.00
Antique Mottled Gray Enamel Pail with Handle and Lid. Marked on bottom with their stamp, Lalance & Grosjean "Agate nickel-steel ware". This company, of Woodhaven, NY was one of the first in the U.S. to make enamelware. Their products were revolutionary at the time and came with a chemist's certificate stating that the enamel was "free from poison", after concerns about the enamel coating in cookware. L&G were a very highly regarded company and successful in their sales of enamel cookware among other things. They manufactured enamelware from 1850 into the 1900's.

This handled pail is oval shaped with a soft mottled gray glossy finish. The handle is uncoated metal. It measures 9" x 6 1/2" x 6" tall (excluding lid handle and carrying handle). It is in amazing condition, considering its age. There are only a few minor on interior (as seen in photos) and a few minor spots on interior edge of lid. There is one spot of wear on top of lid near handle. The metal carry handle has some slight rusting. Otherwise, this piece is near perfect!

An amazing example of early agateware or graniteware.....really stunning.
