Half sized 2lb loaf tin

Am looking for a half length/sized deep 2lb loaf tin.  I want to make a smaller loaf sometimes but want to keep the same dimensions except shorter.  Can anybody point me in the right direction.  Am in the UK.

Yes, I have been looking for a bread pan that is half the length of the standard pan for a couple of years.  NO results.  Would really appreciate learning of a source if anyone responding to this post knows somewhere.  Thanks.  Jim Burgin

Not sure of the volume it will hold, but about a year ago in a King Arthur catalog that came with an order they had a "tea loaf pan."  Might have been clay or ceramic.  It was longer and narrower than normal to promote faster baking.  I considered it, but have 8-1/2, 9 and 10" plus a 14" pullman (and limited storage) so I passed.  Check the KA website.

Not sure how I posted twice; fingers faster than my brain.  It would help if I'd fully read every word of your post.  My KA thought probably doesn't apply.  

Just looked up a USA pan I thought was shorter/wider, but it's their Hearth Bread pan and is bigger than I realized.  2" longer than their 10" I bought awhile back.  Good luck!

I thought loaf pans were usually 1 or maybe 1 1/2 lbs. You want a short 5" pan that holds 2 lbs?

Would a 3/8 lb loaf pan work? 5 5/8" x 3 1/8" work? It is not very deep though...2 3/16" deep. I have been looking for a half size pan too, and that is all I have found.

If I find anything, I will post for you.

I found a 4.5 x 4.5 x 4.3"  pan on Amazon. Pullman, lid, gold, ridges. Aluminized steel.

Another gold one without ridges.

A silver one.

All say "Toast Mold"

Germer makes one. Called square cake pan.
