Thanks for info. Unfortunately, I it is a show piece and not a pot. See the picture. The joys of cleaning...I found a crack at the bottom. I am still gonna season it just to preserve it, but it looks like it is no longer a cooking utensil. What does that do to the value? I was intending on putting it into service.

Hurts the value greatly. The majority of the collector value is in the marked DO lid. The majority of the pig ear DO's and spider skillets of this period were unmarked. Most offered today were wedded matches, the lid fitting a mate that was not original. That's where the guessing and speculation as to the maker occurs. Thanks again for the "look-see".

Been a couple of years. Just seasoned the lid. Here are pics. My understanding: based on leg shape and lid pattern DO pre-dates 1890's but could be as late as 1930's. Maybe these pictures will help narrow that range. Either way, I know it is cracked but it still looks nice. And I have the priviledge of knowing someone that ate meals that were cooked in this pot (mom-in-law).

I thought I read somewhere that Phillips and Buttorff became partners in 1869. Before that, Henry W. Buttorff began working for J. W. Wilson in 1858 and in 1861 became patners with him. Phillips later bought Wilson out.
