Re: Question RE: Griswold Diamond Logo Griddle

"Griswold's Erie" diamond logo pieces are seen with "ERIE" ghosts. Can't say as to overlap, but am sure they didn't halt production to change the TMs on all the patterns at once.

Re: Question RE: Griswold Diamond Logo Griddle

There are handle griddles marked simply "ERIE", but I'm unaware of anyone trying to codify them into series as has been done with Erie skillets. Certainly there should be some with and without some...

Re: Anybody Want to Take a Guess on This One?

To have started with a Wagner, they would have had to add the inset heat ring and build up the bottom of the handle to create the ridge, both probably more involved than the usual copycat would be...

Re: Gate Mark or not on ERIE skillet

Not bad, apparently, for 130 yrs. old. Still no conclusion as to warp or crack, though.

Re: Gate Mark or not on ERIE skillet

Hard to say without seeing cooking surface or examining for warp or cracks. eBay recently sold listings are a good guide for current values.

Re: Gate Mark or not on ERIE skillet

If not raised at all and no grinding marks around it, it would appear to be a sand shift in the mold it was cast from. Yours is a 1st series Erie. The phenomenon is seen up through even Slant EPU...

Re: Requesting Advice

Of course, one would like to find pieces they want for as little money as possible. But, if it's not warped, cracked, or pitted from rust, and you want it, $20 doesn't seem out of line (nor would...

Re: Requesting Advice

The notched heat ring dating of Lodge really only applies to skillets. That it has a heat ring at all, if Lodge, means it is their "old style" griddle, which is very much like an extremely shallow...

Re: No Notch Lodge?

Yes, no-notch #14s are also seen with the rounded assist handle.

Re: Sometimes You Have to Take a Chance.

The handle bottom was a good clue. Last time I found one like that, it had the 8 with the flat top and bottom visible on the handle, a Griswold for sure, I thought. When I pulled it out of the tank...

Re: Hammered #8 Wagner DO?

Yes, it is a Wagner. For some unknown reason, more than one manufacturer produced hammered ware unmarked (with no marked counterparts). Wagner also cast this same piece in aluminum. Recently sold...

Re: A Mess when Cooking

Likely the water content of the butter in the already hot, oiled skillet. If you want to cook in a butter/oil mix, add both to the pan cold. The water in the butter will evaporate as the pan heats up...

Re: Griswold? No 9 Golfball Muffin Pan

I think the roughness/crudeness of the Pitman and Birmingham markings is enough to say Griswold didn't make this piece.

Re: Griswold #99

Symbol Ware. Also seen are saucepans and skillets. Many sources place them 1960s, but 1950s is more likely, given Griswold had already been sold by the 1960s. I have the same #99 roaster including...

Re: Lodge Blacklock Warp

My assumption would be someone probably did as I described above, warped their nice new skillet, and it somehow ended up where you found it. Older (and newer) thinner castings don't take abuse as...

Re: Lodge Blacklock Warp

Yes, I'm aware of their new premium Blacklock skillets. I wasn't entirely sure you meant that or the old unmarked pans people like to think are late 19th century Blacklock.

Re: Lodge Blacklock Warp

Assuming you are speaking of the modern line Lodge is calling Blacklock? I wouldn't say warpage is inevitable, assuming the user doesn't do something negligent like placing an empty pan on a high...
