Default Any Ideas?

Years ago, my Mother gave me an old spider skillet that I have used to cook steaks in and would love to find out what brand or how old it is. It has "10 in" on the handle and has the letters OW on the bottom. It also has a gate mark. Would there be any way to find the origin? I will try to attach a couple of photos once I figure out how. Thanks

The photos will be a very big help for the experts on this site. I don't collect, but I love to look.

the 'OW' is probably just a molder's mark.. .and won't help in determining its origins. and there were a lot of foundries that made those hearth spiders or hearth ovens with the longer handles and the size in inches on top of the handle... so narrowing it down would be based on other characteristics.

for pics I use imgur... its free to sign up and you can easily upload pics and make an album and post links to the album.. .it's pretty easy to use.
