Anyone know what this pan is used for?

Hi, I found this pan in the back of a cabinet and I'm trying to figure out what it's used for :-) It looks to be cast aluminium, it's about 3/4" deep. Any ideas?

I've been trying to work this one out. Let me ask - Is it solid metal. I mean, is it a flat bottom with those high points having lots of metal under them. Or is it the same thickness all over, in other words, is the bottom just the reverse of the top? It looks almost unused in the photo. Is that right?

Those are almost always scored and shaped differently

An egg mold used in a chicken factory? A mold to make mini "giant" eggs without having to stuff the pig intestines?

Patty, I'll meet you at the corner of J and K.......you kill me.

To me, the pan just looks like a roasting pan, the egg shaped indentations are there so the lobster or meat roll like a pork loin, doesn't roll. That's a guess.

It does not have a flat bottom, the bottom is the inverse of the top. It "feels" like cast aluminum to me, and you're right, it's never been used :-) On one end there are two holes on the bottom, one at each corner. They are maybe 3/16" of an inch almost like it can be put on something to hold it or to prop it up (?).
