Hi, Could you tell me the age of this this Erie 1786 No 8 Griddle and why you believe it is that age? Also, is that a makers mark at 8 PM? Thanks

Default Re: Age of Erie 1786 No 8 Griddle

Griswold didn't use badges affixed to patterns for numbering. This would be someones's copy using an Erie griddle as/as basis for a pattern. This pan could therefore have been made any time after the original pan used for the pattern was made. A maker's mark, as in the maker of the pattern, would be incised. Molder's marks were raised because the marking tool was impressed into the sand mold cavity surface resulting in a raised mark on the casting. Griswold did not use molder's marks.
