Default Light bulb skillet

I posted this in the thread about Lodge Advertising skillets but then I started thinking it might be a BSR. Since it was made for Georgia Electric I thought it might have originated from Atlanta Stove Works. After looking at it more closely I think it may be an early 3 notch Lodge skillet.

From what I can see of the handle, it looks more like Lodge than BSR.

After a little more research I can see that the North Georgia Electric Membership Corporation was based in Dalton Georgia and Dalton is closer to the Lodge foundry in South Pittsburg TN than to Atlanta Stove works. It makes sense that this would have been ordered from Lodge.

Plus BSR was never known for elaborate custom patterns such as this.

Thanks Rick, the quote on the skillet makes me laugh. Apparently the good ol' boys down at the electric company thought pretty highly of themselves. I imagine the worker bees at the foundry got a laugh out of this one.

Here is my light bulb skillet cleaned up. It's so shiny like a light bulb.

No E tank here. I have a lye tank and scrubbies. I scrub pans. It's my hobby.
