i recently went through a giant stack (a few years worth in fact) of martha stewart living magazines to cut down on the clutter in my home. and going while through them, an article about vintage pans struck really my fancy. it makes me wonder, are baking pans a common collection? are they easy finds at thrift stores?
i can imagine them making lovely displays hung in a mass on a wall, with their delicate but industrial shapes looking like sculptures. and imagine the cake shapes you could make! i'm sure that there have been remakes of vintage pans, but something about pulling out some perfectly shaped brioches from an antique french mold is extremely romantic.
or what if you started a collection of vintage baking pans from all over the world? now that would be a tag sale tale.
