WIRCO Skillet
 
This was amongst a bunch of CI pieces we recently found at an estate sale a few weeks back so I decided to clean it up for grins. It measures 11 1/4" dia. and the surfaces inside and out are quiet smooth. Per our CIC data base of foundries the Wrought Iron Range Co. has been around for quiet some time up until the 60's. Seems like stoves were the bread and butter of most their business once they figured out how to produce them without disastrous consequences. Was just wondering what time frame this steel skillet was produced since there wasn't any info regarding their cookware in our CIC base? It says they made their cookstoves up thru the 1930's so I'm guessing it's somewhere within that time frame.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Have already read those post but it really didn't tie down any certain time frame regarding the era those skillets were made.

Got the WIRCO seasoned today and it turned out great. Was quiet impressed regarding the quality of the metal and a nice dark seasoning. Guess it's a keeper for now.
