Default Toy? Ash Tray

Came across this recently. Couldn't pass it up. Probably won't see much use as an ash tray.

Toys were replicas of full size cookware. Advertising and cigarette rests confirm ashtray. Or backup spoon rest in a pinch.

Doug,

Thanks for the spoon rest Idea. I didn't want to just let it sit around. Now I have a reason to keep it near the stove.

I've melted butter in one. Pours pretty well.

I have the answer to this question, at least from a later Wagner marketing perspective.

melting butter, chocolate, cook one egg
spoon rest, coaster, or just for decoration... and novel ash tray.

yeah. I got this little guy in a lot with a couple other small enamel ones at that last dinkys 'john wright' auction. they sold several lots of 3 or 4 of these little enamel ash tray pans and the only reason I bid on this lot was that one of the other ones was a pretty turquoise color that my wife liked... I hadn't really looked that closely at the one in the original package until I got everything home. givec that the package has the textron name on it I assume we know when this was made and sold (59-69).. .and I kind of wanted to open it and see how the pan was marked (or if it was marked with little wagner ware marking or not under the enamel on the back)... but decided to just leave it in the package, I have several other little speckled pans so this one seems more special in the package.

The back says that each Wagner piece of cash iron is pre seasoned. When did Wagner start pre seasoning?
