Re: Looking for a Griswold Hinged Lid P/N...

Well, the seller provided two more pictures, but it's pretty much impossible to make out anything, figure if they're certain it's a #8, it might be worth buying......

Re: Gate Marked Oval Griddle

If I'm reading correctly, National was a "economy" branding from Wagner, and dates from 1890s-1930s.
