It a handled dutch oven. Made to cook with coals under and on top. Anything a modern oven can do can be done with that. It has the older "D" shaped feet and what appears to be a casters mark on the bottom.
Sorry, I do not know what company made that.
Is the lid a tight fit or snug fit?
Most are matched up from different sets.
I have handled many marked Spider lids, but I have not seen that lettering.
I am guessing the lid was made using another lid as a pattern due to the slip mark.

The lid fits nice and snug. Either the lid or skillet are not completely level because it only fits real nice in one position... when you can read the lettering while looking at it from the handle end. If you rotate it it will rock or not seal up real well.

For years my parents used it on the hearth to cook sweet potatoes and keep them warm for Thanksgiving dinner. After a good cleaning I think I'll be adding it to the camper galley to use while camping.

Well winter has finally broken so last week I set up an e-tank and started on my pile of old iron. First in the tank was a Piqua #9. It has a lot of pitting on the bottom but its flat and the inside is in great shape. I already have it in use. Yesterday I seasoned my Wagner drip-drop roaster lid for the dutch oven. don't know what the oven is. The only marking on the bottom is "5qt" and a small "x".

Here are some pics of the Piqua.
