What's this pan for?

I have a saucepan with an odd shape. I was given it by my mum. It has bulbous sides; the bottom half bulges out and the top half is relatively straight.

Does anyone know what type of pan this is and what it's for? I can't seem to find any pictures of anything similar.

Can you post a picture of it? It's hard to imagine what it looks like.

How about an ASCII art representation instead of it from the side. :-)

It's a saucepan, but with this shape.

Nice try, although it doesn't help a whole lot

Is it like this?

I'm wondering if it's the bottom pan of a double boiler set.

Something like that, but the bulge is about 4 times more pronounced on my pan. And it only has one handle (of the sticking out type).

Could it be a pan that was designed to use on a boat? They have larger bottoms so they will be less likely to tip over.
