Re: Spider Skillet? Camp Oven Skillet?

I have seen the identical pan and lid in the OP identified elsewhere as BSR. BSR catalogs from the 1950s include a photo illustration of their "Camp Leg Skillet with Long Handle and Deep Lid" showing...

Re: Unknown Unmarked? Griswold?

The number of variations of unmarked Griswolds is few and fairly well known. The font of the number on top of the handle is decidedly non-Griswold, as is the lack of a pattern number. Whoever made it...

Re: Wagner Ware 1081 skillet cover

The 1081 fits the earlier design 1088 deep skillet. Originally, the #8 deep had sidewalls that continued the flare angle of the regular #8, resulting in a wider top diameter. Later, Wagner remade the...

Re: Orginal or Recast

It's just that it looks like a 20th century pan, but the bottom gate is more a mid-19th century and earlier casting technology. The grind marks going all the way around really shouldn't be necessary...

Re: Orginal or Recast

The design of the skillet places it in the time frame in which the major manufacturers had already moved to side gating. The question here would be are there artifacts of side gating at various...

Re: Griswold or Wagner?

It is shown in either the RB or BB, but I don't recall what it says about it. The pattern is taken from a Griswold #2700 wheat stick pan, but Griswold gem pans only have hanging holes in one handle....

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...

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...
