Re: Identify 7Y Skillet

Best to assume that photos will be expected whenever seeking ID help. Saves a lot of time.

Re: Waterman Gem Pan

The image included for illustration purposes may not be of a genuine pan. It may have been the closest thing I could find at the time. In paragraphs below the listing, however, it is noted that...

Re: CI I Have Had for Years

I was thinking it may be a Griswold unmarked Victor. There would need to be a 754 on the bottom, though. Victors, being economy brand skillets, are smaller and shallower than regular skillets of the...

Re: CI I Have Had for Years

Handle isn't at all right for BSR. Is there a possibility of other markings under build-up at 12 o'clock?

Re: Griswold 8 Tite Top DO. A Few Questions.

The lid is not weakly marked, it's enameled. Griswold called it a "Clean Easy" feature. I'll have to get back to you on the match vs. marriage.

Re: Can You Help Me Identify This Beauty?

They are both BSR. The one you found photos of online is definitely from the period I noted above. The one in the first post appears to have pour spouts smaller than those of the older 1930s-40s Red...

Re: Can You Help Me Identify This Beauty?

BSR. From early 1950s, when they started using their first type of automated molding, to the mid-1960s.

Re: Dutch Oven ID Help

Both BSR. Lid Red Mountain. Pot seems more recent. Single-tapered loop handles mean there was only one hinged retractable prong on the pattern, as opposed to the earlier two prong style.

Re: Really Old Sidney O Scotch Bowl

The last BB lumps the 3, 4,and 5 together at $40-60. My goal 10 years ago was to try to figure about half whatever the average of values it quoted was and offer that. Might not be a feasible strategy...

Re: Griswold/Puritan Waffle Iron, Made This Way?

The frequency of this type of pairing being seen, coupled with an example in the BB, tends to indicate this version and at least one other Puritan version (p/ns 885/886) were sold this way. P/ns...

Re: Oh No!

BSR, early automation period, 1950s - early 60s. Could have been sold as either Red Mountain or Century. Nothing in the photos appears to indicate fire/heat damage.

Re: Griswold No. 8 Plated Chicken Pan with Lid

This may give an idea of a general time frame according to the TM and other characteristics:

Re: Made a New Friend and Got to See a Portion of His Collection

Definitely produced as a toy. Quite a collection there, especially the Erie spider tea kettles and the Griswold oval skillet. In this context, living in PA has its definite advantages.

Re: Griswold No. 8 Find with Lid

Good find. The lid is worth substantially more than the pan.

Re: Unknown Cast Iron Any Help Appreciated

Smelting elemental iron from iron ore isn't something you can casually do. Since sand molds for cast iron are single-use and are required to be destroyed to release the casting, there wouldn't be any...

Re: Slight Wobbles, Yay or Nay?

Some pans wobble because they were warped by maltreatment. Some pans wobble because they were made that way. Some pans wobble when they're hot, but don't when they're not. My preference is none of...

Re: No. 8 BSR Skillet, Possible Red Mountain?

Smaller pour spouts and no dimensional markings indicate early automation (pre-DISA machines). Marking will likely be numeral plus pattern letter. Pans from this era could have been sold as either RM...

Re: Unknown Chicken Fryer

BSR chicken fryers are smooth bottomed. Somewhere 1930s-40s on this one.

Re: Unknown Chicken Fryer

Birmingham Stove & Range. The flat area on the underside of the handle is unusual for BSR. The larger pour spouts and style of lid place it in the pre-automation Red Mountain era of BSR.

Re: #7 Wagner DO Top

I'd say you're looking for either the flat lid with double prong loop handle (per BB pg. 245), or a "turtle top" profile lid, with the center hump that tapers to the edge with no angular break. The...
