Pacific Steam Navigation Comany Pasty Cutters
The Pacific Steam Navigation Company was established in 1838 carrying mail and passengers and operated in the Pacific coast of South America, and was the first to use steam ships for commercial traffic in the Pacific Ocean. The company was finally incorporated into Royal Mail Lines in 1938. These two rings, which are made from plated metal, are nicely embossed with the company crest featuring Pacific Steam Navigation around the edge and a crown in the centre. We are not 100% sure of their purpose. One ring is a fraction smaller than the other and it has been suggested they were pastry cutters as they have a rounded ring on the top and a bevelled sharper edge on the bottom although we stand to be corrected on this! The larger ring measures 4” diameter (11.5 cm) and the smaller is 3.75” (9.5cm). Our price is for the pair but happy to sell individually at £15.00 each.
