Re: Purchasing Online... Deciphering Photos

Given the time frame that particular pan was made and that the build up of crud would not likely be uneven and localized in that way, it is more likely to be pitted (99.999% likely, IMO).

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

I think we can safely say that whoever made the Brilliant iron in the first post also made the Belmont iron with the same pattern numbers. We can also see that Stover made a Belmont branded iron,...

Re: Fish Fryer or Double Gate Burner

Pans very much like this intended for cooking were termed either "long pans" or "fish fryers" interchangeably, and sometimes had a spout at one corner to facilitate draining cooking grease. But, no,...

Re: Grooved Handle but Not Griswold, Help Please

By all other accounts, an early automation period BSR. Interesting is that there are enameled pieces from Krane in St. Louis, MO that are just like this. Search Krane on the forum to find other times...

Re: Help with Identifying Please.

Only links ending with a filename ending in ".jpg" should be placed between img tags. Otherwise just paste the link into the post.

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

Raised pattern numbers would be atypical of Griswold, even on items sourced from them. The handle style and their attachment with rivets is similar to Favorite Piqua, but little else is. FPW was also...

Re: Fire Damage?

It kind of does, but not exactly. The reddish coloration of classic fire damage is usually more a rosy red, but lighting, camera flash can make it look different.

Re: Wagner Identification Help

Regardless of listings in the RB or BB, you'll only see Wagner #2 and #3 skillets with smooth bottoms and the stylized logo. Those with the size number only would be ca. 1922-1924, the first year...

Re: #14 Unmarked Bailed Griddle

The 6 o'clock orientation of the 14 and that diameter are consistent with BSR (Lodge are 14-3/8"). But catalog illustrations show the round knob type of attachment, which an actual photo confirms,...

Re: #14 Unmarked Bailed Griddle

Maybe Lodge. Bail attachments aren't right for BSR. What is outer diameter?

Re: Do Southern Mystery Skillets Ever Have Gate Marks?

The question is, however, did the original maker(s) use bottom gating (early on, one would have to assume), or are the bottom-gated examples copies/recasts?

Re: Griswold Cast Iron Lamb Cake Mold

There are multiple versions of the Griswold lamb molds. Primarily you want to see pattern numbers on the halves and no casting flaws.

Re: DuraWare P5 Cornstick Pan

I would think the foundry came first and the copying second. Like how early Wagners have Erie ghosts on them, and Wapaks have Erie and Wagner ghosts (sometimes on the same pan). Actual pattern making...

Re: DuraWare P5 Cornstick Pan

Appears to be copied from a Lodge 5-stick pan. There is also a handleless closed-frame 6-cup turk's head pan marked Duraware. Two of each of the eight letters are marked on four of the cup bottoms.

Re: Moulders Mark?

Not a molder's mark. It was made from their DISA automatic molding machines. It's a screw driven into a pattern suspected of creating defective molds so they could ID the pans made from it.

Re: Old Gem Pan

Looks like recast/copy of an old Lodge. Could probably find the real deal for under that price.

Re: Help Identify

Hard to say. Of the numerous Griswold variations of the #22 breadstick pan, none seem to have this combination of characteristics. The shape was widely copied, and many makers stuck with existing...

Re: Thrift Shop Finds

Other than it's not Lodge or Wagner, no. The incised B tends to indicate whoever made it used multiple patterns and was keeping track of their production.

Re: Thrift Shop Finds

The shape of the handles is not consistent with Lodge cornstick pans. The sticks on theirs are also uni-directional. Although a Lodge 7-stick mini pan offered in the late-1990s to 2010s mimicked the...

Re: Thrift Shop Finds

The 5-stick pan has the hallmarks of an unmarked Wagner, except they were not known to make a 5-stick version, only 7-sticks.

These two pages help ID unmarked pieces by the major 20th-century...
