Black & Cream Enamel Bin


An extra-large industrial black and cream enamel pan that would make a wonderful wastepaper bin, workshop dustbin or shed tidy for holding potting compost or all those bits and bobs that need a handsome home. It also makes a stunning houseplant pot holder, and, if your need is for an outsized boiling pan, then this is surely it.

History of enamel in the home

Up until the mid 19th century kitchen vessels were either ceramic or tin. Although the enamelling process had been invented hundreds of years before, it took the Industrial Revolution to drive forward the quality of vitreous enamelling and its application to everyday household objects; and by the end of the 19th Century enamelled household items of all shapes and sizes had become commonplace.
