It is most helpful to provide pictures directly above the piece showing the entire top and entire bottom (including the handle). Looking down the bottom of the handle, the ridge and scoop suggest BSR. The 7H is also consistent with a BSR pan.

I'm not sure but the pour spouts look small. If so, it may be late Red Mountain or Century Series. I'll defer to others on that.

A picture of the entire bottom would be helpful.

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.

Lois,

Suggest you plan on leaving it in the lye bath for a week or so. Take it out every 2 or 3 days and rinse it off, apply a little liquid dishwashing soap and then scrub it with a stainless steel brush. Return it to the lye bath. It may take several iteration of the before you are satisfied with it.

You may find some of the crud is really "cemented" onto the pan. In these cases, I have some success spraying the pan with regular (yellow can) Easy-Off, putting it into a plastic bag and let it sit for at least a day. Again, rinse, soap and scrap. This too may take more than one application.

Good luck.
