Any ideas?

Thanks,

Al

Al,
More pictures please. Top of lid, top, sides and bottom of the pan. A single picture of the inside of the lid is good since that is a fairly unique pattern of drippers, but the other angles really help.

Sure thing. I took a bunch. I'm also new to this IPAD

I guess I'll do one by one

Here's the cover. I'll take a closer shot

Also, the Dutch oven is very heavy (11 lbs) and has no country of origin markings.

Looks very much like Wagner, except for the basting element design.

I've searched online and can't find a lid with the same design. What era would you say?

The bottom half looks a lot like my Renfrow Ware DO.







If I'm right, that means there's three different versions of Renfrow stuff

Double cross version:


Hammered version:


Plain version
