This is a Frisbie's Pie tin from the long defunct bakery in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Legend has it that workers in the original bakery in Bridgeport used to play catch with these pie plates (some say it was Yale University students), thus originating the game of "Frisbee". This is an excellent example, as it is still bright and shiny. It is about 9 3/4" in diameter, with a depth of 1". This is the version with 6 vent holes. The letters are 1 1/4" high. There are a few scratches in the bottom, indicating that a few pies were cut after being baked in the tin. See images of front and back for condition. It would polish up nicely, if desired. These were returned multiple times for deposit. Great piece of toy history!
