These metal muffin pans are about 6.5" square with cups that are 3" x 1.25". There is a logo in the center which says "Circle Brand Copyrighted". Not sure if they are steel or tin. I think they have quite a bit of age, maybe 1930s? It is odd that they say "Copyrighted" as opposed to "Patent Pending", "Patented" or "Trade Mark", I think. Because the writing is inside three circles that seller called them "Three Circle Brand" but that was just a guess. I found a couple of other examples on line, but nothing about the brand. I have been looking for some for muffin pans that will fit into my toaster oven and came across these. I use my natural gas oven for storing cast iron cookware, and it is a bear to unload it all just to use the oven, so I just stick to my toaster oven. As a twenty year anniversary gift from my ex-employer I got a large, fancy countertop convection oven, but have never taken it out of the box. My 20 year old toaster oven does everything I need, although it is small.... Does anyone know anything about "Circle Brand" cookware?
