Question About a Griswold Button Lid
I was lucky enough to find a Griswold 7 Dutch Oven with a button logo lid last week. The bottom is large logo, pattern 1277 and the lid is 1287. I'm trying to get a date range - just for my own information. I've read several threads here, as well as the information pages but haven't found anything other than one thread saying the button logo was "later"? Also, several references indicate the inside of the lid is enameled but mine does not seem to be? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!!!

Re: Question About a Griswold Button Lid
Button logo skillet lids appear to be from the 1930s. Lids which look the same (recessed center circle) but without the logo are later. "Writing top" skillet lids are earlier, from the 1920s. That seems to be generally true of DOs as well. The BB and RB don't seem to agree with those time frames for DO lids.
