Re: Identifying Old Lodge Camp Oven

Based on my research over the past 5+ years the rusted Camp oven was probably made from the 30's to about the late 40's to 50's. Therefore being older than the seasoned one you have. Not sure when...

Re: Identifying Old Lodge Camp Oven

Since there are no pics to view I assume that you have already some research. If you have the RB (The Book of Wagner & Griswold), (Red in color) you can go to p.233 which illustrates many of the...

Re: ERIE #9 Find

The Martin was from a different dealer. It had lots of rust, not the pitting type, but will require more time for cleaning. Probably will post them later on.

A few weeks back I purchased several pieces of CI and among them was this gem pan. Think this is a waterman #3 according to our CIC Gem Pan library. Was thinking it could be a re-cast but it meets...

Re: Morning Swap Meet

The Puritan is aluminum. The base is fully marked Griswold with a p/n of 235 so assumption is it was made by Griswold. The 235 doesn't appear in the CIC data chart but does appear in the pattern...

Re: Is This Kettle/cauldron Too Far Gone, or Can It Be Restored? Is It Even Worth It?

I personally would pass on it and try for a piece that #1) has less rust and pitting. #2) has all 3 feet that are of equal length. The price seems high for a piece that has one broken foot and visual...

Re: Ever Heard of "BELLE CLAIRE WARE" Cast Iron Skillet?

Paul's post says it's 5 3/4" across the heat ring so I assume he was talking about the bottom. I've got a #4 WW somewhere but can't lay my hands on it at the moment so I have nothing to compare with.

There are 15 variations of the #10, 948 pan. Hard to value your piece not knowing which variation you have. The YB has values from $25 to $150.
These pans were made from 1880's to 1950's

Re: Looking for Help Identifying This Square Pan
