Default Trying to identify this skillet.

Just signed up today and I'm looking forward to participating as much as I can. I've been using cast iron for years, but have just recently started collecting some extra pieces as I come across them for a decent price.

I picked this #8 up at an estate sale over the weekend and I've never seen one like it before. Hopefully, someone here can help.

There are some 3 or 4 minor variations on that skillet with the small lips and handle of that general style. No id is really possible on them and I have a feeling that the variations may have been made by different foundries c.1880s to early 1900s. Clean her up and make her a daily user. The early skillets are very satisfying to use.

Thanks, Steve. I figured it was probably pretty old, but maybe not that old. I picked up several other skillets at the same estate sale. They all appear to be pre 60's Wagner, Griswold and BSR in various sizes. Just about all of them have crusty buildup on the bottoms and sides, but they are all clean on the inside. It looks like they were being used on a regular basis.

Old skillets are ageless; they go on cooking and pleasing the cook and cooking that which pleases out stomachs and eyes. I regularly use two Vose & Co. skillets made in Albany somewhere between 1848 and 1861 (confirmed).
