Cast Iron Fruit Press (Enterprise)

Re: Who Was the Maker?

Need to post a few more pics showing the cooking surface and bail attachment to the griddle. Sometimes these small clues can help with identification. Pretty sure it's not a Griswold or Wagner.

Re: BSR Century?

As you said....early Century series. Probably around 1957 or shortly there after. BSR didn't initially put the NO in front of the size until the 60's.
It's a good pan. Clean it up and cook in it.

Alaskan Cool Handle/Griswold #9

Most Griswold WI's that I have found have different handles than the one I found this past weekend at the swap meet. While cleaning it I noticed that the wire exits a small hole on top of the base...

Re: Griswold Skillet Lid?

IMO...The low dome with the raised lettering. a) They are older 1915-1935. b) They reveal all the information as to size and what the cover is used for. c) they are just prettier to me....

Re: Griswold 203 & Bean Pots

After almost 4 years I still haven't fired off this burner. Restoring these old pieces takes time and by the time I finish one piece I'm on to the next one.
I use "Dupli-Color Semi-Gloss black...

Re: Chaos Arrows on Inner Part of Lid?

I ran across this very same piece (lid) that was on a DO last year at a antique shop in Colorado where I found my Griswold #14 "bail handle" skillet and passed on it. Wasn't sure until did some...

Re: BSR 7S with Ghost 6

Since the 7 S red mountain series had a measurement of 8 11/16" it just so happens that the #6 red mountain also has the same dimensions. That might explain the ghost mark. This is per...

Re: Chaos Arrows on Inner Part of Lid?

Eclipse was a brand name used by the John C. Kupferle Foundry Co. doing business in St. Louis since 1857. The lid you have was most likely made in the early 50's but not before.

Re: Help Identifying Camp Stove

Re: Griddle ID Help

Because of the pour spout and the raised number 8, I'm guessing it is a "Deep Long Pan", by Lodge, circulation around 1906 - 1930s.
The RB p.231 says it was in the line of the Blacklock Foundry. The...

Re: Wagner Omelet Cake Baker

Just my thoughts......but I think your second guess is most likely its intention, an omelet/cake baker. The cake baker part would most likely be a pancake. Probably meant for a single person or...

Not sure they would be any more rare since it would difficult at best to pinpoint a date when they were actually made. The circulation dates for many producers of CI include those war years and I'm...

Re: Need Info on a Wapak Kettle with Brass/bronze Plating??

Ketchup also has the same effect on copper (which appears to me like in your latest photo's) instead of brass. No expert on copper cladding but I would guess copper and not brass. Copper would be a...

Re: Early Red Mountain #8

Your assumption is correct. I have several of them that were hand scribed and they all have cleaned up nicely and have a wonderful cooking surface. The lids for it were also hand scribed for that...

Re: Need Info on a Wapak Kettle with Brass/bronze Plating??

The piece you have posted appears to be what's called a "Maslin Kettle" made by Wapak around 1903-1926 era. My reference book does not show that Wapak made this kettle using nickel plating so I'll go...

Re: Warped #9

Most likely 100% it will break/crack if you try and straighten it. If the warpage isn't too bad and you have a gas stove it's probably safe to use it for cooking or push come to shove use as a...
