Lodge on the pot and trivet? Lodge or Martin on the lid? Is it an oddball Lodge lid, or just a Martin lid on a lodge pot?

A lid such as this has been seen before with a chicken fryer which appears to be Lodge. The trivet is an older Lodge, as far as I can tell. The pot may very well be Lodge, but we still haven't seen photos of the bottom of pot in its entirety. As noted before, close-ups show characteristics, but not context, e.g. two different brand DOs may have similar fonts for size numbers, but if we can't see the handle attachments, heat ring, etc. we can't begin to say which is which.

OK so Lodge is definitely how we're leaning. I appreciate all the info - I'm very much new to this. Any idea of an age, or no?

Here's the only view I have of the pot upside down:

And this is the only marking on the bottom of the pot:

The pot seems definitely Lodge, probably late 1950s by markings/lack of markings. I would lean towards the lid also being Lodge and may or may not be from the same time frame; I don't see a molder's mark. I won't speculate further about the handle because speculation in these circles is all to often repeated as fact elsewhere.

I appreciate the insights! After getting delayed cleaning it up, I've started seasoning it as of last night.
