Re: Lamb Mold

Griswold made multiple versions of the lamb cake mold. The earliest (1920s) has loop handles on both halves, round leveling pegs and p/ns 947/948. It is also known as the "leg forward" version as the...

Re: Erie #7 Bean Pot

I've always seen it akin to someone trying to call the earliest Model T automobiles, which didn't say Ford on the radiator, "pre-Ford".

Re: Erie #7 Bean Pot

Pieces marked ERIE are Griswold. "Pre-Griswold" is an often-seen but incorrect term for them. The ring is an assist handle for pouring.

Re: Help Identifying This Chicken Fryer

The limit is three attached images per post.

Yes, that is the middle section of a combo cooker. The bottom would be like a dutch oven pot, the top would be dual purpose as a lid or a skillet....

Re: Help Identifying This Chicken Fryer

Definitely not Wagner. Looks more like part of a combo cooker.

Re: Gem Pan Dough?

The Gem & Muffin Pans page (link at bottom of page) gives a general description of what constitutes a "gem". A web search of "gem batter recipe" returns several examples.

Re: Dating Griswold Muffin Pans

There are 15 variations of the #10/948 muffin, only 2 of the #10/949 popover. One might reasonably assume the TM revisions follow the general time line of those of the skillets to at least some...

Re: Any Idea on Who Made This and When?

Without a name (or even sometimes initials, e.g. "P.B. & Co.") on them, old bottom gated pieces like this are rarely if ever identifiable as to maker. Handle designs were more representative of...

Re: Little Red Hen?

Not shown in any catalogs I've seen, but Lodge's entry into enameled ware appears to be much later than that, more like mid-2000s.

Re: Wagner Cost?

Being a Wagner alone doesn't always translate to value. It could be overpriced or the bargain of the century, depending on what the piece is, its condition, and during what part of Wagner history it...

Re: Mystery "9 Inch Skillet" Pan with Capital I in Two Places

A photo of the entire bottom including handle would take the guesswork out of IDing it.

Re: What Are These Notches?

Cast iron doesn't dent. The damage was likely to the aluminum pattern, assuming it was not an intentionally-made marking device.

Re: Lodge SQSK 8

There's an identical one on eBay currently, pattern letter D, though. Two others sold recently.

Re: Any Reason?

Patterns (molds are made from patterns and are destroyed when the casting is released) can certainly suffer damage that can end up being cast into the pans made from them, but what's normally seen in...

Re: Lodge?

Early Lodges are not without their flaws, I have one with an actual visible thumbprint cast in it.

Re: Lodge?

Would expect a no-notch Lodge to have a raised size number on top or at 12 on the bottom, and a molder's mark. The casting roughness at the lip left of the handle in the third pic would make me look...

Re: Martin Camp Oven

The orientation of the handle to the marking being 90 off, my take would be the patch areas around the lid handle are a copier's method of dealing with the problem of getting a closed loop handle...

Re: Identifying This Old Beauty (probably 1860's)

Doesn't look to be in any real need of restoration. As to identification, if it was of US origin, there might be a chance someone in a US-based group might be familiar with the marking, but even then...

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

The assumption was based on the OP having previously identified himself several times as a "Wapak guy", and that as such he would already have been aware of the Indian medallion skillets.

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

The OP is talking about Wapak 3s other than the Indian head medallion skillets which all have heat rings. My comment about Wapak being notorious for "borrowing" other makers' pans for pattern...

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

While selling or giving the competition patterns are both extremely unlikely, making pans from stolen patterns would be unfathomably foolish, especially if you put your name on them.

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

Pattern creation involved the carving of a pan first in wood (and sometimes other materials), then from it creating a master in brass to which runners and gates were added to create the aluminum...
