Re: Are These Sprues with a Gate Mark??

If you mean the dots around the perimeter, those would probably be nub feet to keep the pan from rocking on the gate mark.

Re: Potential Value?

You'll find some eBay sellers think pieces like this are worth nearly $100. Then you'll walk into a flea market and find one for $5 or $10. I can't speak to what values you'll find in the "gray book"...

Re: Anyone Help Identify Skillet?

Something mechanical applied to it. The brushed marks across the top of the handle, however, are not unusual, and are sometimes seen as artifacts of less-experienced foundry finishing tasks.

Re: Beginning Hard Slow Baked Seasoning Question

This is why just cooking is preferable. Refined fat with little carbon such as that from food being cooked polymerizes to that bronze color when not taken past the smoke point (not that that's what...

Re: Help with ID

Unmarked Wagner markings of that period were consistent across skillets and other pieces. No other maker had inscriptions like them.

Re: Beginning Hard Slow Baked Seasoning Question

The shiny spots are where excess oil that needed to be wiped off more congealed into droplets. When the seasoning article says to wipe like you're trying to totally wipe off what you just wiped on,...

Re: Erie Cast Iron Pot/Dutch Oven

839 is the Griswold pattern number for a #10 dutch oven lid. It was also re-used for a #4 flat bottom Scotch bowl. The p/n for the #10 dutch oven pot is 835. If it is an Erie dutch oven pot and not...

Re: Help with ID

The page contradicts itself a bit. More sources place them 1930s to 40s, with subsequent early (pre-DISA) automation pieces showing the reduced pour spout size and neater but still size number and...

Re: Anyone Help Identify Skillet?

With vintage cast iron, you have to stop thinking like a machinist and start thinking like a chemist. If you don't want to destroy collectible value, that is.

Re: Anyone Help Identify Skillet?

That would be a Wagner. Any future requests for ID help should follow the photo posting guidelines and show the entire bottom of the piece, including the handle, in a single shot.

Re: Anyone Help Identify Skillet?

Probably unmarked Wagner. Often photo uploads fail because the image size is too large. See sticky topics on adding photos to posts.

Re: #7 ERIE Griddle

That one didn't see a lot of use. One might assume the inception of p/ns inscribed on pieces occurred about the same time period as 3rd series skillets, 1890ish-1905.

Re: Favorite Skillet Cracked. Please Help with ID.

A handful of similar have sold on eBay recently (at eBay prices). You might be able to find one in person somewhere for much less. I have found them for as little as $5. Having said that, are you...

Re: Favorite Skillet Cracked. Please Help with ID.

Pre-20th century unmarked pieces are extremely rarely identifiable as to maker.

Child was a big proponent of Descoware, but photos and illustrations always show the bean pot with applied loop handles on the sides, not a bail handle. The Descoware in ads is always described as...

Re: Le Creuset Bean Pot?

If the ridge around the circumference of the lid doesn't fit inside the top rim of the pot (it doesn't look like it), the two pieces likely aren't a set.

People collect them. They were produced by more than one maker.

Re: Unknown Cast Iron

Seems unlikely the ERIE would have worn off. If someone's copy using an Erie, and they filled in the mark (leaving size and pattern number on such copies is not uncommon), it looks like a very...

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

You'll have to squint, the markings are all under the Clean Easy enamel finish. But yes, that looks correct. Ask seller to confirm what's between the two outer rings just above the tab if possible.
